National Occupational Standards
The Manitoba Tourism Education College uses emerit National Occupational Standards which describe the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be considered competent in an occupation. The Standards are set by seasoned industry professionals from across the country and are validated by the industry.
National Occupational Standards represent what real employers look for in new hires and they define the level of competence required for the full range of skills in an occupation. They reflect actual workplace conditions and current issues affecting the occupation. When we say ‘competent’ we mean a person who meets the standards; competent employees are superior job performers.
MTEC uses emerit National Occupational Standards to inform and update our tourism, hospitality and retail training programs with the most current practices, including changes in the use of technology, sustainability and evolving service practices.
