PEOPLECERT ACCESSIBILITY Certifications for Professionals

13/01/2013 | 0 comments




Growing demand for accessible hotel services for individuals with disabilities and the elderly means that offering equal services to all guests is a key point of focus for hotel managers who want to maximize their overall service portfolio.

As such, employing personnel who can cater for the needs of people with disabilities can be a strong point of differentiation between hotels. But ensuring such capabilities is not a straightforward process.

To facilitate selection of the best-suited personnel for any hotel position, PEOPLECERT now offers personnel certifications that will ensure a hotel employee is capable of offering the same service quality to individuals with a disability as to any other client. Employment of certified staff can, in turn, create a distinct competitive advantage for the hotel among its competitors.

For hotel professionals, holding such certification means that they can distinguish themselves from others, making themselves more marketable in the competitive tourism industry.


The ACCESSIBILITY Certifications for Professionals aim

  • to create a global community of hoteliers and hotel employees in general, who have demonstrated their knowledge and competency to create the same service experience for all hotel clients, whether they have a disability or not, covering a broad palette of disabilities;
  • to help hotels - including all different kinds of accommodation - and conference centre managers to select the most competent people to serve clients with disabilities;
  • to help hotel professionals add value to their work and increase their marketability and career advancement opportunities in the tourism sector.


PEOPLECERT’s unique portfolio of competence-based ACCESSIBILITY Certifications for Professionals is fully compatible with ISO 17024 requirements. The certifications measure a person’s knowledge of and ability to cater for clients with disabilities, and offer them a service that will ensure their overall experience is equal to the one offered to all clients.
