The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association Educational Foundation (FRLAEF) began offering the Lodging Management Program (LMP) and the Skills, Tasks, Results Training program during the 2006-2007 school year.
Beginning in 2012, the FRLAEF began offering the new edition of the LMP program, entitled Hospitality and Tourism Management Program (HTMP). This was developed by industry experts and members of the American Hotel & Lodging Association and will take the place of the Lodging Management Program as the official industry-recognized curriculum to prepare students for roles in the hotel industry and beyond.
The HTMP takes advantage of these opportunities, helping high school juniors and seniors take their first real steps toward promising hospitality careers. This latest high school curriculum introduces the hospitality and tourism industry on a global scale with a large focus on diversity. The program is delivered with graphic-rich textbooks and workbooks, and incorporates the best of modern technology with a selection of online coursework. Most importantly, this curriculum is industry driven as evidenced by the fact that more than 60 industry leaders served as subject matter experts, ensuring that today’s program matches the needs of hospitality employers across the world.
