Graduates of ABHTI are well prepared to thrive in today’s dynamic hospitality and tourism environment.

Antigua and Barbuda Hospitality Training Institute (ABHTI) prepares young people to enter the expanding global tourism and hospitality industries, as well as to fill hospitality positions in Antigua, Barbuda, and other Eastern Caribbean islands. The institute was established in 1977 and is located at Dutchman’s Bay Coolidge.

ABHTI offers accredited associate degree programs in culinary arts, food and beverage management, hospitality management, and tourism management. Certificate programs include basic cookery and front office and restaurant operations. Students learn from highly qualified instructors and industry professionals who are passionate about their fields.

“MRF has donated dozens of laptops that have equipped our students with the necessary tools to excel academically and professionally, provided scholarship funds that have opened doors for deserving students, and offered opportunities for internships that give students real-life work experience. MRF’s financial aid over the years has also made a variety of campus improvements possible, and we can’t express enough gratitude for their contributions.”

– Raynel Carroll, Operations Manager

Hospitality and tourism theory is part of the institute’s curriculum, along with plenty of practical experience. For example, culinary arts students offer cuisine events in the local community, allowing them to showcase their new culinary skills and creativity.

ABHTI’s vision is to become the premier hospitality and tourism training institute in the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and the wider Caribbean.
