WVU Extension Partners with State to Offer Online Hospitality Training Course in Support of State Tourism Industry

Posted: October 9, 2013

A new online training program helps to ensure that the faces of the state’s tourism industry — hospitality employees — are able to provide the services essential to visitors. “This program’s success is a testament to what WVU can do through collaborations,” said Doug Arbogast, WVU Extension Rural Tourism Development specialist. “We have the capability to connect our resources within the University to departments across West Virginia to service the state’s needs.” Known as West Virginia Welcome, the course is available on West Virginia University Extension Service’s online learning system.
