New program to train Emiratis for hotel, tourism jobs


DUBAI – A new program has been launched to train Emiratis in the tourism and hospitality sectors and give them diplomas to boost their careers in these fields.

The pioneering program, Sufara’a Al Dhyafa, is being offered by Hotel and Tourism Management Institute (HTMi) Switzerland Dubai.

The diploma in Hospitality Operations Management encourages Emiratis to become managers and leaders in the hospitality industry through the well-rounded program, offered at their Dubai campus as well as across all Emirates.

The 3-month intensive diploma program was developed in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, and actively aids government objectives of Emiratisation in the private sector.

The program does so by encouraging Emirati drive in the hospitality industry through developing all the necessary skills to succeed in the industry.

The diploma consists of 9 modules that spans across various sectors of hospitality management to educate students and provide them with a Swiss-Certified UAE National Diploma.

HTMi offers diploma programs and short courses to its students. The Diploma in Hospitality Operations Management is a program dedicated only to Emiratis.

“Our training focuses on the future of hospitality in the region, teaching specific guest-experience techniques required for the evolution of the industry. In the last two years, the UAE has witnessed the opening of numerous theme parks and tourist attractions, along with continuing building projects to deliver an additional 40,000 hotel rooms in anticipation of Expo 2020. This rapid development requires numerous new roles to be created to ensure those projects succeed, highlighting the need for a highly-trained hospitality workforce”, says Judit Toth, Business Director of HTMi Switzerland Dubai.
