If you thought that during a major pandemic was not a good time to consider changing careers, Wendy Carter may convince you otherwise.

Wendy is a trainer and assessor and is about to begin her third Certificate III in Hospitality with IMPACT Community services, something for which she is highly trained and experienced.

“Now is a good time to be learning hospitality because employers will be looking for people who are serious,” Wendy said.

“And there will be lots of people who want to change careers.”

Restrictions are currently being incrementally eased across Queensland’s restaurants and bars.

However, there are lots of new regulations industry workers need to be aware of.  For example, common touch points have to be cleaned every hour.

Wendy will be teaching all the new requirements in the upcoming course, which starts on Monday, June 29. 

All participants will need to undertake a COVID-safe program as part of the course.

“This is not a hobby course, but a course for those with a genuine desire to work in hospitality and may be looking to rise to a supervisory role,” Wendy said.

The course will teach participants how to coach others, along with all the necessary food safety laws and regulations.

Wendy has also adapted the contents of the course, to include table service, extra food hygiene instruction, and a food safety supervisor certificate. 

“Every hospitality business needs a food safety supervisor,” she said.  “The course also includes the RSA (Responsible service of alcohol) unit. Employers tell us this training is a big incentive for them to hire you.”

Wendy knows what she's talking about. She has had extensive experience working in or managing commercial kitchens including restaurants, cafes, aged care and hospital settings.

She has owned and operated two motel businesses across 15 years which included hands-on operations and supervision of the kitchens, restaurants and a conference facility.

On top of all that Wendy has also had extensive experience as a trainer for several community-based organisations and TAFE, teaching a variety of hospitality front-of-house and back-of-house subjects to Certificate and Diploma level students.

Wendy will be running the course via face to face online classes.  As restrictions ease students will complete the practical training in our Commercial Kitchen.  The course begins June 29 and runs until October 15.
