Hospitality training for frontline hospitality workers in the Black Belt

Through a grant provided by the Alabama Association of Resource Conservation & Development Councils in partnership with Alabama Black Belt Adventures and Experience, LLC, The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development is pleased to invite frontline hospitality workers to a free two-hour, in-person hospitality training workshop.

What: Four-Course Hospitality Training (in person)

When: See schedule below to find your county/training location

How: Through a grant provided by The AL Association of RC&D Councils, administered by The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development (UACED)

Why: Few industries have felt the effects of the pandemic as much as the hospitality industry. With additional unemployment benefits ending, individuals that may have been laid off due to the decrease in travel in 2020 are now being asked to return to the workforce. Hospitality training is needed statewide but especially in the Black Belt Region. This hospitality training will empower service industry employees with the tools needed to attract, retain, and grow tourism in the region.
