It is the best certification I hold... Before, I was an IT guy working in a hotel; the CHTP helped me become a hotel guy working in IT.
I am truly grateful for the knowledge and expertise that I have gained through the CHTP certification, and I cannot thank HFTP enough for providing such a valuable resource to hospitality professionals like myself. This certification has not only equipped me with the methodologies and best practices in the industry but also helped me become a better employee for my company.
A CHAE / CHTP designee with at least seven (7) consecutive years of active designation, and who meets the requirements of “Retired Status”, per Section 11: Retired Members as stated in the HFTP By-laws may transfer to retired status. In a retired status a designee may not solicit or perform any paid employment or consulting services related to the CHAE / CHTP and shall use the designation, CHAE / CHTP-Retired. A designee will retain full membership benefits including publications and discounts on HFTP products and training events; however a designee is not required to maintain the CPE requirements. HFTP will remove the work contact information from the membership database; all correspondence will be sent to designees’ home address
A CHAE / CHTP designee with twenty (20) or more years of active certification status is eligible for the Emeritus status effective January 1, 2016. This status will not require those who are eligible to report the educational maintenance requirement; however, they would still be responsible to pay the maintenance renewal fees.
You must pass the CHTP Exam to earn the designation. You must complete the application process and include all required materials in order to take the exam.
Grow in the industry and your career with professional development and networking opportunities you cannot get anywhere else.
