Message from Chairman SLITHM
For the first time in the 50 year history of Sri Lanka Institute of Tourism & Hotel Management (SLITHM), we are collaborating with an external professional body to launch the Certified Hospitality Finance and Management Accountants Professional (CHFMA) course in association with the Institute of Certified Management Accountants (CMA) of Sri Lanka.
With the surgein leisure traveler arrivals and the growing demand for qualified and competent management staff for the hotel industry, we have decided to launch the Certified Hospitality Finance and Management Accountants Professional (CHFMA) course to hone the knowledge base primarily of finance staff currently employed in the Hotel Industry and for the benefit of those finance professionals aspiring to be part of this fast growing and lucrative industry. Also the non-finance hotel professionals too will benefit from this course as they will be able to gain insights to the technicalities and mechanics of hotel accounting, which will add value to their own disciplines within the hotel industry.
I take this opportunity to thank our Hon. Minister JohnAmaratunga for his visionary direction, Mr.Dinesh Weerakkody Chairman National Human Resource Development Council(NHRDC), Professor. Lakshman R.Watawalathe President of CMA and his team and also the team from SLITHM who were involved in conceptualizing and designing this course. Their commitment and enthusiasm has led to today, which has enabled the launch of this pioneering course.
