People will always dine out, need a hotel, attend conferences, seek out resorts, and more recently, find their way to the festivals, sporting events and the casinos in our region. In fact, more than 84 percent of the jobs in the Lehigh Valley are in the service sector, meaning hospitality is one of the safer bets in these difficult economic times - here and abroad.
That's why Northampton's CBI offers a full array of credit and non-credit options to start or progress your career in this exciting, fast-paced industry. Whether you want a certificate in Event Planning, need a basic course in RAMP Alcohol Service, hope to become a table games dealer, dream about opening a bed and breakfast, or want to be the one person in a room of 500 who can fix the microphone, CBI is the region's highly-respected, completely affordable resource for comprehensive hospitality and tourism education.
