Online Course Offerings

As of Spring 2017, online courses are now available for Business Fundamentals, Hospitality Training Foundations, and Telecommunication Foundations for students who may benefit from studying at home.

  • Prospective students and counselors considering the on-line learning option should contact the National Statler Center Admissions Office to inquire if this is the correct choice for you.
  • The program, approved by the New York State Department of Education, is specifically designed to encompass our traditional course content while reducing the amount of required on-site hours, thus reducing lodging and support costs.
  • Students who enroll in the on-line learning hybrid are required to complete all coursework as outlined by the National Statler Center program and instructors.
  • Brief center-based requirements (outlined under upcoming class dates) are a mandatory component for completing the course and earning a certificate of graduation. This center or on-site requirement length depends on the number of courses the student is taking.

Statler expands its program offerings…

As of spring 2017, online courses are available for Business Fundamentals, Hospitality Training Foundations, and Telecommunication Foundations for students who may benefit from studying at home or in a supported classroom location back home. Our hybrid certification program incorporates the best features of both online instruction and on-site study to deliver a holistic educational experience for our students. The program, approved by the New York State Department of Education, is specifically designed to encompass our traditional course content while reducing the amount of required on-site hours. This allows the Statler Center to reach a population seeking training with a more flexible approach than a traditional in-house program, thus decreasing the time away from home and family and greatly reducing lodging and support costs.

Students who enroll in the National Statler Center’s on-line learning hybrid are required to complete all coursework as outlined by the National Statler Center program and instructors according to deadline and enrollment agreement. Additionally, the on-site requirements (outlined under upcoming class dates) are a mandatory component for completing the course and earning a certificate of graduation. The on-site requirement length depends on the number of courses the student takes.

Whether in-house or online learners, students may enroll solely in the Business Fundamentals course, or they may take Business Fundamentals plus a second skill specific course, either Telecommunication Foundations or Hospitality Training Foundations.

Business Fundamentals is a pre-requisite to taking a second Statler course, since the technical and soft skills acquired in this course are necessary for both further study and job placement. Students solely enrolled in Business Fundamentals also are eligible for our placement services. It’s important to note that online learning requires a high level of technical proficiency, technical support, and time management skills. It may not be the optimal academic opportunity for all styles of learners or for those seeking the socialization and support of classroom peers.

We encourage all prospective students and counselors considering the distance learning option to contact the National Statler Center Admissions Office to inquire if this is the correct choice. Students who may not benefit from distance learning are strongly encouraged to apply for the in-house training programs. We are happy to answer any questions about our hybrid online learning program or our in-house programs. For more information or to discuss options, please contact:
