After recently launching HFTP University (HFTP-U), the program is kicking off its educational opportunities with Technology Knowledge Share seminars focusing on Microsoft SharePoint.

Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP), along with Datanamics, is offering the Microsoft SharePoint seminars for free to members and for a nominal fee for nonmembers.

The four-hour training seminars are being offered around the United States on:

  • January 10 in Las Vegas, Nev.
  • January 19 in Washington, D.C.
  • January 24 in Orlando, Fla.
  • January 26 in Dallas, Texas

The free seminars are designed for individual contributors or departmental staff with basic SharePoint skills who have the responsibility of managing SharePoint sites or for those interested in learning more about the SharePoint software. Using Microsoft SharePoint allows professionals to set up Websites to share information with others, manage documents from start to finish and publish reports to help staff make better decisions. The seminars cover basic understanding on managing content, effeciently collaborating a team, easily finding content, records compliance and more.

Complimentary registration is available online at www.hftp.org. 

Broadening the technology training opportunities for members, HFTP has partnered with Datanamics to form the new HFTP University (HFTP-U).

The training program is a one-stop resource to provide high-level, technical and end-user training for the hospitality industry with a comprehensive curriculum ranging from subject matter expertise to certifications.

HFTP-U's new course catalog includes the top 100 most popular and relevant training courses, such as vendor training (Microsoft, Cisco, etc), IT training (virtualization, security, operating systems, etc.) and business training (end-user training, business analysis, etc). HFTP-U courses are available at select HFTP conferences, HFTP chapter meetings, at the Datanamics Training Center in Las Vegas, Nev., and through four special seminars held around the United States throughout 2011. Every HFTP-U course includes a 20 percent discounted rate for HFTP members and courses can be used towards CPE hours for CHAE and CHTP designees.
