On-Demand Course with Lodging & Restaurant Versions! Available in English and Spanish
New Announcement: Because of challenges with renewed mask mandates, we are offering free access–thanks to a generous sponsorship from Anheuser Busch–to the online video segment about mask compliance. In less than ten minutes you’ll get tips to keep interactions calmer with someone who is resistant and help avoid potential confrontations. Open to anyone in Oregon who works at an organization that holds a liquor license; access valid through September 30, 2021.
This online course was developed by the Oregon Hospitality Foundation (OHF) with input from hospitality industry partners. It was created to help support business owners and employees with ideas for managing service challenges that the pandemic presents. Cost for taking the course begins at just $5, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors Travel Oregon, Dutch Bros Coffee, epb&b insurance, SAIF and in-kind support from partners BC Consulting, FPW Media, Hospitality by Torres, and Togather Restaurant Consulting.
