New Hospitality Training at LAE [Lewiston Adult Education]

Lewiston Adult Education is launching a new 14-week hospitality training program. Designed for adults interested in a career in a restaurant, hotel, ski lodge or health care facility, "Introduction to Hospitality" will provide industry-specific training in the skills that managers are seeking.

Participants in the program will learn how to provide unparalleled customer service, gain hands-on experience in both front-end and behind-the-scenes restaurant and hotel work and learn techniques from hospitality managers themselves as they guest teach classes.

By the end of the program, participants will have a solid understanding of the various branches of the hospitality industry and will have gained the skills to be competitive as an applicant for an entry-level position in a restaurant, hotel or other residential facility.

"Introduction to Hospitality" will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Aug. 31, at Lewiston High School. The registration fee for the course is $145, with a $35 lab fee. For more information, visit or call 795-4141.
