Hospitality Facilities Maintenance Certificate

Curriculum CE.HOS.CERT (C384A)

The Hospitality Facilities Maintenance Certificate provides both lecture and hands-on training for facility engineers working in hospitality environments. Local 399 Educational Training Fund participants will become familiar with the design and operations of hospitality facilities in order to address risk tolerance, reliability, maintainability, and predictive maintenance. They will also acquire the necessary skills for employment in jobs requiring multiple maintenance competencies. These competencies will allow graduates to obtain highly skilled maintenance positions in a variety of industries including but not limited to hospitality, working in places such as hotels, motels, resorts, inns, restaurants, theme parks and other related businesses.

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

  • Maintain and repair systems and functions associated with hospitality and the maintenance of hospitality facilities;
  • Troubleshoot and provide predictive as well as preventative maintenance of hospitality facilities; and
  • Communicate effectively, not only using the terminology appropriate to this trade, but the skills acquired in the other non-technical coursework.

Graduates of the program may seek employment as a facilities engineer, operating engineer, chief engineer, maintenance foreman, or as a building maintenance supervisor working in settings involving complex systems.
