Orlando, Florida, February 2017—The American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI) and StudySmart, a Greek organization that provides training, certification preparation, and other professional development services for a spectrum of industries, have signed a memorandum of understanding designating StudySmart as one of AHLEI’s international associates.
Under the agreement, StudySmart will market and deliver AHLEI’s hospitality management courses, professional certifications, workshops, and online training programs (with the exception of the Certified Food & Beverage Executive (CFBE®) and Certified Restaurant Server designations) to the Greek hotel industry at large.
StudySmart was established up in 2005 by experts in the professional training field, led by Dr. Constantine Kiritsis, who was instrumental in setting up and establishing the professional training market in Greece. StudySmart operates on an international level in numerous European, Asian and Middle Eastern countries offering more than 20 designations through its pool of training experts.
“We are very excited with our new partnership with AHLEI as it raises the benchmark in the hospitality industry in Greece,” said Kiritsis, StudySmart’s CEO. “As in every profession, it is important to differentiate and receive certification to raise professionalism, demonstrate acumen in the specific area and overall develop, support and increase value in the hospitality industry. We at StudySmart have a proven track record and expertise in professional designations in the past 20 years, training aspiring professionals and helping organizations become an employer of choice.”
