USM, Pond Island:— In partial fulfillment of the requirements of their ‘Food and Beverage Operations’ course, USM’s Hospitality Management students ALL passed the exam and received their ‘Food Handlers Food Safety Certificate.’

Mr. Jan van Beek, the instructor of the USM course, said that he really would like to thank Mr. Michael Somersal of Steflogix who made it all possible and facilitated the course free of charge. He added that as the students involved will be doing a work placement over the summer, it is definitely an advantage for them that they have this certificate under their belt.

According to Mr. Erwin Wolthuis, head of the hospitality division, this is again a great example of what the fully accredited curriculum of the hospitality program stands for. In our present BTEC accredited program, the focus is on truly preparing the students for a career in the hospitality industry. We aim to do this by integrating professional certificates in the academic program; hence, this is not the only certificate they are prepared for next to their academic degree.

Coming August a new cohort of the accredited HNC in Hospitality Management will commence. We are inviting everybody who has an interest in obtaining this international recognized diploma can.
