International association Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) recently introduced its new Certification Advisory Program (CAP), which is designed to provide guidance to Certified Hospitality Accountant Executive (CHAE®) and Certified Hospitality Technology Professional (CHTP®) applicants.

The inaugural program will pair HFTP certification candidates with HFTP members who hold an active HFTP designation. The advisors will help and support candidates via one-to-one interactions as a supplemental review option for the certification exams. Approved CAP advisors can earn HFTP education credits to help them meet their designation maintenance requirements.

"HFTP certification demonstrates superior performance – in both technology and accounting – to the industry," said HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe. "The CAP program is a great opportunity for certification designees and applicants to elevate their professionalism and leadership development. Having the guidance, encouragement and support of a trusted mentor will help mentees reach new career goals."

HFTP offers the only designations for finance and technology professionals who are working in the hospitality industry. Both the CHAE and CHTP designations require professionals to sit for an initial competency exam, and complete continuing education credits for each renewal cycle. Qualification for the exams is based on level of education and experience in the industry; student programs are also available.

If you are interested in being considered for a CAP advisor, please submit a CAP application today. For more information about the Certification Advisory Program or HFTP certifications, email HFTP Certification Manager Robin Bogdon at robin.bogdon@hftp.org or visit www.hftp.org.
