Virtual Hotel

The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute teamed up with Knowledge Matters to offer a virtual hotel you can use in your classroom.

Students who complete the Hotel Online simulator receive an exemption from the 100-hour internship component of the industry-recognized Certification in Hospitality Tourism and Management.  Students must still pass both the HTMP Year 1 and Year 2 exams in order to earn the certification.

Hospitality Industry Internships

The Hospitality Industry Internship (HII) provides the opportunity for Florida HTMP instructors to work in a lodging establishment for at least 40 hours. Once the required paperwork has been processed, the participant will receive a personal check for $600 from the FRLAEF.

To qualify for an HII, the instructor must teach the HTMP curriculum during the 2017-2018 school year. If you are already employed at a restaurant or hotel, you MAY NOT use that site for your internship. The restaurant/hotel must also be a new work experience for you, not somewhere you have worked before or used as an HII internship location.

The applicant must secure a position at a foodservice or lodging facility where a minimum of 40 hours of hands-on experience is guaranteed. The host location may pay the recipient but is not required to do so.

The FRLAEF will award 11 HII’s this school year on a first-come, first-served basis. So apply NOW! Work experience may begin once the applicant receives an award notification from the FRLAEF. If HII awarded, all work must be completed by June 15.
