House Keeping basically makes the provision of a clean, comfortable and safe environment. As the guest enters the foyer he forms an impression of the establishment from its outward appearance. Then after check-in, the guest comes in to contact with the lift and staircase of the Corridor to reach the allocated rooms or lounge and public areas. By this time he/she closely observes the clear lines decor furnishing etc. Thus the prime aim of this well-structured syllabus is to provide a unique balance between theoretical & practical input using advanced teaching aids, followed by six months industrial training providing exposure to the students.
