Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP)

About Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP)

The three-year Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP) at the secondary level provides high school students with education and training to prepare for entry-level to semi-skilled level jobs in the tourism and hospitality industry.  Students can earn from three to five credits in the Tourism & Hospitality cluster towards graduation.  Students who successfully complete all course requirements will be awarded the GCC Certificate of Completion in Tourism.  GCC Certificate of Mastery in Tourism will be awarded to those who completed all the required courses in addition to at least one credit in Co-Op work experience.  Students are eligible to earn national certificates from the Educational Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association.

All students who enroll in GCC CTE programs offered at Guam's public high schools must do so through the GCC Career Counselor assigned to their respective high school. The Career Counselor can help you decide if enrollment in the CTE Lodging Management Program is the most appropriate way for you to fulfill GDOE elective requirements and prepare for college and/or the workforce. The Career Counselor can also help you draft an educational plan that may allow you to graduate from high school with GCC postsecondary program credits, giving you a head start on your postsecondary associate degree or certificate.  

Career Opportunities...

The CTE Work Experience component of the curriculum places high school students into jobs at hotels and other tourism related businesses. These jobs often lead to full-time offers once the student graduates, and the companies are often willing to work around the employee's schedule when the employee enrolls into a postsecondary program. 

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:
  1. Perform basic fundamental skills in the various positions required in lodging operations. 
  2. Gain sufficient knowledge to meet national standards for lodging operations. 
  3. Demonstrate perceived professional and career planning skills. 
  4. Demonstrate industry technical skills in night audit, sales and marketing, banqueting, and general knowledge in the lodging industry.
