The CT Tourism Coalition launched the CT Hospitality Awareness Training program (CHAT) to train frontline personnel who work at attractions, hotels, restaurants and other businesses that make up the Connecticut tourism industry. CHAT is Connecticut’s first online training program to educate workers on the fundamentals of hospitality service and the significance of tourism to our economy. The Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT has partnered with the CT Tourism Coalition, to create an Eastern CT curriculum for CHAT.
