What will I learn?

Enjoy a rewarding and exciting career in one of the largest and most diverse industries around the world.

Certificate IV in Hospitality will lay an essential foundation for further study with our Diploma of Hospitality. While you extend your knowledge and skills on various facets of Hospitality, you will also become qualified to be a team leader and supervisor.

Course Description

The SIT40416 Certificate IV in Hospitality qualification covers a wide range of core hospitality topics, and exciting electives. Graduates who complete their Certificate IV in Hospitality will be competent in the responsible service of alcohol, food safety and hygiene, bartending, coffee making and food and beverage service skills. They will have the leadership skills to manage and lead others within a business, along with grounding in the financial and operational foundations of running a leading hospitality venue.

The course structure allows for repeated practice of practical skills, continually building on existing skills to help develop both confidence and professionalism. The confidence and skills our graduates attain will allow them to operate independently or with limited guidance from others, and use their discretion to solve non-routine problems in the workplace.


Skills and knowledge assessments are an essential step in progressing through your course. You may be assessed in a number of ways while you study at the Queensland Academy of Technology, including observation, written assessment, questioning, portfolios, work samples, third-party feedback, and through recognition of prior learning.

You can choose to package this course with the Diploma of Hospitality for a shorter duration of the combined programs.
