These brand new hospitality training facilities are being developed under the auspices of The Capital Hotel School and Training Academy (established in 2001).

The new Rustenburg campus of CHS TRAINING ACADEMY is situated on the HUNTER’S REST ESTATE, nestled between the Magalies Mountains, 12 km from Rustenburg, only one and a half hour’s drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria.  Our first intake will be 30 students in total.

Full Time Diplomas: 18 Months

We are looking for dynamic and committed young people who aspire to a career in the highly challenging hospitality industry.  A Grade 12 or similar qualification is essential.  Computer skills, including a basic working knowledge of word processing and spreadsheets, as well as verbal and written proficiency in the English language are pre-requisites. 

Practical training on and off campus takes place under close supervision and according to a roster to complement the theoretical training. We will take full responsibility for the placing, rotating and rostering of our students and monitor their evaluation and progress during their practical training on and off campus.
