Delivery Options

  • Licensed Stream 
  • Non-Alcoholic 



We have two streams of the Certificate III Hospitality Traineeship, the licensed stream and non-alcoholic stream. Licensed is designed for venues that hold a liquor license, the non-alcoholic is designed for venues that do not hold a liquor license and do more counter based service. 


A traineeship is when employees study a certificate as part of their permanent employment. Employers will provide paid time for employees to complete formal training and assessment with a registered training organisation. Employers and the employee can access funding (if eligible) from the government to help cover the costs of training. Download the brochure for detailed course and funding information.


 Job Opportunities

We work with a number of large employers that recruit directly from our current classes and from our graduate’s list. We hold private simulation sessions where employers will come and observe your skills, conduct interviews, and many students will be offered a job immediately.
