Professional Development Courses

The Restaurant Association professional development aims to help hospitality businesses of all types and sizes to grow and keep skilled and knowledgeable people who deliver great service and great results. Our programmes maximise learning in short and concise session so your offsite time and costs are as minimal as possible.

The training experts that the Restaurant Association engages with are committed to working with and developing the industry and sharing best practice. Together, we ensure that your business benefits from staffs that have the knowledge and ability to drive your success. Talk to us today about how we can help you and your business.

A range of training sessions and workshops are held from March until October in Auckland, at the Restaurant Association's venue, taste, ground floor, 45 Normanby Road, Mt Eden.

We also run regular webinars (online presentations), which can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection.

This Professional Development Road Show has been made possible with assistance and support from the Hospitality Training Trust. The Hospitality Training Trust was set up in 2011 to advance training in the hospitality sector in New Zealand. The aim and purpose of the Trust is to advance training, develop and promote excellence, leadership, talent and knowledge, and undertaking research for the hospitality sector.
