Studying the Certificate III in Hospitality at Holmesglen
This course provides a pathway to work in restaurants, accommodation venues, clubs, pubs, cafés, and coffee shops.
Training is delivered in a realistic operational environment - Holmesglen's training restaurants - using current industry tools, equipment, documents and other resources which play an essential role in skills development to produce graduates that are industry ready.
You will graduate with a range of well-developed hospitality service, sales or operational skills and sound knowledge of industry operations. Through practical restaurant sessions, you will have learnt to work with some independence and under limited supervision using plans, policies and procedures to guide work activities.
To receive this qualification you must complete 15 units - seven core and eight elective units.
All elective units have been chosen by Holmesglen based on feedback from industry and staff qualifications.
Students who have previous qualifications in a similar hospitality course such as SIT20316 Certificate II in Hospitality may be able to apply for credit transfer for the units they have completed. The units and implementations must match the same as those being delivered in the SIT30616 Certificate III in Hospitality training package. This would need to be mapped against the qualification to ensure the units are equivalent.
