Training & Education


There are many ways to get started or upskill in the tourism and hospitality industry. Some entry-level training can be completed online at your own pace – we call this on demand training, this will help you get your foot in the door. If you’re looking to upskill or explore a career in tourism and hospitality, we recommend looking at upcoming short courses in our calendar or further study options at TAFE or university.


A lot of hospitality and tourism businesses will look for attitude and personality when hiring over experience for the many on demand positions. However, to make your resume appear more attractive to potential employers, we recommend the following courses:

Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA)

Depending on which Hospitality or Tourism business you work for, this certificate may compulsory to obtain to work on-site.

AHA Hospitality & Tourism COVID-19 Hygiene Course

The AHA Hospitality & Tourism COVID-19 Hygiene Course has been backed by the Western Australian Government and is designed to provide you with hygiene awareness and procedures.

Service with a Smile

The course provides strategies for improving attitude and perspective relating to contextual matters in customer service as well as raising service focus and awareness.


When it comes to getting a job in tourism and hospitality, having skills and knowledge can really give you the edge over other jobseekers. There’s a range of vocational education and training (VET) courses available at WA TAFEs and private training providers that can set you up to be job ready, with the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. Or if you already have some skills and experience but would like a career change or promotion, a training course may be the way to get there.
