See what the industry's leaders are saying about the CHAE certification and how it can elevate your professional career. 

"I consider the earning of my Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive (CHAE) & 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.  They also show a real commitment to HFTP and it's goals have enabled me to service the association in ways I would have never dreamed possible.  If you have been contemplating earning either of the certifications, I would encourage you in that pursuit.  You will be very glad you did."
