Certified COVID Hospitality Compliance Officer

Continuing Education Workforce Certificate





Hospitality leaders are responsible for many aspects of the business, including the health and safety of staff and customers. The CHCO is instrumental in making sure restaurants, venues, and anyone planning events can re-open and keep their customers and staff safe from the spread of COVID-19.

This program will introduce the fundamentals of what COVID-19 is, the symptoms and methods of mitigation, and the roles and responsibilities of a COVID Hospitality Compliance Officer (CHCO). Students will learn Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization regulations, as well as federal, state, and local regulations, and how to enforce these regulations with both customers​ and staff.

Students entering this program should have outstanding communication skills, strong organizational skills, excellent customer service skills, the ability to understand and follow safety protocols and regulations, and knowledge and/or experience in hospitality-related fields is helpful. Since this course is delivered completely online, students need the self-discipline to complete all required material.

COVID Hospitality Compliance Officer jobs can be found in hotels, restaurants, resorts, and other hospitality-related industries. Additional career information may be found in Career Coach:
