High Schools

Career readiness and employability skills also known as transferable skills, have become a critical part of education. Employers are seeking graduates with a combination of skills that fall under this career readiness and employability umbrella that include such things as soft skills or people skills, customer service skills and life skills. These skills include: effective non-verbal and verbal communication, problem solving, being a team player, accepting responsibility, having a positive attitude, showing good character and time management.

AHA World Campus is a USA licensed post-secondary virtual school, aimed to complement the curriculum of high schools. AHA's career and professional development courses, licensed by the Commission on Higher Education (CHE) of South Carolina, give emphasis to key employability traits and multicultural skills needed for success in today's diverse workforce.

Customer retention is all about customer service and customer service is all about employee morale, motivation and training. AHA's online certificate courses assists employers with both.

AHA World Campus will give your employees the skills they need to not just satisfy customers, but to keep them returning to your business again and again.

Since 1986, the American Hospitality Academy has had one singular pursuit, "to motivate and inspire employees to deliver excellent service, and to achieve an "a ha" or an Amazing Hospitality Attitude. Through AHA's World Campus, companies can now take advantage of AHA's proven techniques and affordable customer service and management training courses. All courses are taken fully online and can be completed at your employee's own time and pace.

AHA is now bringing our years of experience to workforce development and youth programs to help individuals become more employable in the service industry by inspiring their "a ha!" an Amazing Hospitality Attitude.

In today's workforce, soft skills or people skills have become increasingly valued by employers. While traditionally, workers were hired primarily for their technical or functional skills, organizations are now placing greater emphasis on less tangible qualities, such as good communication skills, cooperativeness, character and a positive attitude. AHA teaches the soft skills that are needed for young adults to succeed in the workplace.

Shruti S., India
AHA has made such ad difference in my life. Before i joined this course and after its completion I have gained so much confidence and a new positive attitude inside of me. The way I look at life has totally changed. This course has inspired me, changed me and taught me so many things. Life is too short and you should live like it's the last day of your life.
George B., UK
My internship at Ballenisles Country Club was very stressful and demanding to begin with due to the vast amount of new information and the comprehensive knowledge that I needed to grasp in order to perform my job to the highest standard, at times I felt completely out of my depth but with the help the seminars I was able to put many of the new skills I had learned from my AHA course and use them in order to help me improve day by day. Having the right attitude and setting myself goals were key components to helping reach the level and standard that was expected by my club.
