Hospitality Industry Training

Due to the pandemic, Florida businesses have implemented new health and safety guidelines that have changed the way they interact with both staff and guests. With these guidelines continually evolving, the VISIT FLORIDA Online Hospitality Training program has currently been deactivated as the current content does not reflect new business protocols.

In the meantime, for more up-to-date tips and a compilation of best practices and resources, visit the Business Re-Opening Tips page on the VISIT FLORIDA site. This information will be continually updated.
