|Description:||Centennial College's Tourism diploma program will prepare you for an industry that Tourism HR Canada projects will grow to 2.1 million jobs, exposing a labour and skills shortage in more than 400 types of tourism industry jobs and careers.
With Canada breaking records for numbers of visitors in 2017 and 2018, and 2019 Ontario visitor spending projected to surpass $31 billion (supporting 188,000 businesses and 391,000 jobs), now is a great time to get into the industry. In fact, tourism employs 1 in 10 people and generates 10 per cent of global gross domestic product, so it's undisputedly one of the fastest growing and changing global industries.
Study will combine a well-rounded academic curriculum with hands-on experiential learning, culminating in a 14-week work-integrated learning experience. Content is inspired by the input of industry leaders, bringing together the knowledge and skills required to thrive in both the inbound and outbound parts of the tourism industry.
You'll also graduate job-ready with industry certifications such as Smart Serve, Safe Food Handlers, CPR, Travel Insurance, Cruise Industry and TICO Travel Counsellor Certification.
After graduating with your Tourism diploma, you'll be ready to embark on unlimited career opportunities or you may seamlessly transition into Centennial's iconic three-year Hospitality and Tourism advanced diploma program.

You're expected to come together online at the same time each week to engage in your studies.
