Registration is open for prestigious George O’Leary National School of Outdoor Hospitality in Oglebay, W.V, for its 31st year, according to a press release from OHI, formerly known as the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC).
This week-long program, which is Feb. 25 to March 1, 2024, offers a unique opportunity for Outdoor Hospitality professionals to learn the competencies necessary to operate a thriving Outdoor Hospitality business. Taught by industry experts focusing on business management principles and practices as applied to the industry, students will learn to elevate their skills, expand their networks, and contribute positively to the Outdoor Hospitality Industry.
“The George O’Leary National School of Outdoor Hospitality isn’t just about gaining knowledge; about forging connections,” said Susan Motley, VP of Member Programs at OHI. “I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones who share a passion for Outdoor Hospitality.”
Year One students (first-time attendees) receive foundational knowledge about key trends in the industry, management principles, and more all culminating in their Outdoor Hospitality Management (OHM) certificate. Returning Year Two students engage in critical industry analysis and application activities that earn them their Outdoor Hospitality Professional (OHP) certificate. To achieve the OHM or OHP certificate, attendees must participate in all classes.
The registration fee includes industry expert-led instruction, all classroom materials (provided electronically), daily meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday through Thursday), and a certificate of completion.
