"I consider the earning of my Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive (CHAE) and Certified Hospitality Technology Professional (CHTP) certifications as one of the highlights of my hospitality career. They are a source of pride displayed in my office and will generate questions from visitors. If you have been contemplating earning either of the certifications, I would encourage you in that pursuit. You will be very glad you did."
