Nearly 7,000 CHIA certifications have been granted. The CHIA is the leading hotel-related certification for university students graduating from Hospitality and Tourism programs and a growing number of hotel industry professionals are obtaining the designation. This recognition provides evidence of a thorough knowledge of the foundational metrics, definitions, formulas, and methodologies that are used by the hotel industry. Recipients have proven that they can “do the math” and interpret the results. They have demonstrated an ability to analyze various types of hotel industry data and to make strategic inferences based upon that analysis. Certification also confirms a comprehensive understanding of benchmarking and performance reports. Recipients receive a certificate and are able to use the CHIA designation on their business cards and resumes.
