Certificate IV in Hospitality
The SIT40416 Certificate IV in Hospitality qualification covers a wide range of core hospitality topics, and exciting electives. Graduates who complete their Certificate IV in Hospitality will be competent in the responsible service of alcohol, food safety and hygiene, bartending, coffee making and food and beverage service skills. They will have the leadership skills to manage and lead others within a business, along with grounding in the financial and operational foundations of running a leading hospitality venue.
The course structure allows for repeated practice of practical skills, continually building on existing skills to help develop both confidence and professionalism. The confidence and skills our graduates attain will allow them to operate independently or with limited guidance from others, and use their discretion to solve non-routine problems in the workplace.
