The hospitality industry will receive an influx of trained staff to take up entry-level positions after the first South Regional TAFE’s Fast Track to Hospitality Employment course was completed at the Albany campus.

The intensive five-day course, a first for WA, taught students the art of making coffee and service.

The course was rounded off with a morning tea service, where students were addressed by City of Albany Mayor Dennis Wellington.

Two of the group had received job offers before the end of the course.

The success has led to a second course.
