Why is this course not available as an online course?Read more
Learning a new skill is not always simple and you need support and practice if you want to be able to successfully learn a complex hotel software from scratch. Yes, you can learn certain theoretical aspects by looking at print screens of a system online but let's be honest it is rarely fun or effective and it certainly will not give you the hands-on Opera PMS experience you need if you are serious about your career development.
Maybe the following example will make it clearer why taking an online course will not prepare you for a job in the hotel industry:
Ask yourself "Can you really learn to drive a car by completing a simple online course?" Most certainly not! You have to physically sit in the car, feel what it is like to steer and drive on the roads and learn what challenges you may face; the instructor safely by your side to give you a helping hand and guidance when needed. The same can be said about wanting to learn the Opera PMS Hotel Software. It simply is not something you can learn by watching a short video.
Remember, once employed by a hotel you will be working with a very expensive hotel software and real paying guests. No hotel will allow you to do so just because you completed a simple online course. Practicing on real paying guests, without having received the right professional training beforehand, can damage a hotels' reputation and your confidence. At Reception Academy we will help you build both, strong practical experience and confidence.
Our Opera PMS Hotel Software classroom course is not only approved by some of the biggest hotel names in the world but also endorsed by the reputable and well trusted Institute of Hospitality.
We operate on a "not for profit" basis and we are greatly supported by our partner hotels, allowing us to keep the course fees as low as possible and enabling you to take this essential software courses at a price that most training companies charge for a half day course. Remember, valuable classroom training provided by caring trainers, using a sophisticated hotel operating software can never be replaced by generic online training that is essentially delivered by a machine and does not include hands-on experience on Opera PMS.

I highly recommend the opera course at reception academy, it is a great course. Daniel is a great trainer and the whole team is very helpful and professional, thank you for the experience. Daniel AbioyeWritten
I attended this course last week and our trainer Daniel was very patient and professional. He has guided us through not only the opera system usage but also lots of other related issues we might encounter as a receptionist in the future. Recammend it to those who wish to apply for a receptionist job or are already working but might change to a property that use the opera system.Written
Reception Academy is amazing. I was working as Night Auditor in a 3 star hotel and I felt kind of stuck because we didn't use Opera and every other bigger hotel asked for knowledge of Opera. Just a couple of days after completing the 1 week Opera course I got accepted into a 4 star hotel, in which they requested Opera knowledge. Now I have the chance to grow in a new company. Thank you so much!Written
