The primary mandate of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association Education Foundation from its formation in 1986 has been to support education and training programs for the region’s hospitality and tourism industry.

For the last three decades, the Foundation has raises and distributed over US$2million for individual scholarships and training for the region’s nationals.

Today, in partnership with its corporate sponsors and with the generous support of the member hotels and allied partners of the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association, the Foundation is embarking on a new chapter of on-island training courses to further the development of industry skills and training development in a series of one-day training courses in multiple disciplines.
