The wedding industry is composed of many different sectors. Wedding planners, whether independent or venue-based, is what usually comes to mind. The industry though, also includes all the ancillary vendors, from entertainment to venue, to florists, design and décor, food & beverage, officiant, photo/video and more. This wedding certification is for all professionals in the wedding industry.

Administered by Certplace, developed by the Wedding International Professionals Association (WIPA), and The International School of Hospitality (TISOH), the Certified Wedding Industry Professional (CWIP) credential establishes a baseline of knowledge within the community, bringing up the professionalism of the entire industry.

The International School of Hospitality (TISOH) is a unique school developed to provide quality, practical short-term continuing education and career training programs which enable participants to apply their learning toward personal fulfillment, professional advancement and career development in the hospitality industry.

TISOH’s course content, for each diploma and certificate offering, is predominantly task-oriented and practical, so that learning parallels the duties and responsibilities of industry incumbents. TISOH trains individuals using hands-on approaches that are applicable to specific industry jobs and professions, as opposed to traditional degree-focused pedagogical methods. TISOH’s core mission of quality service and professionalism, consistent with the hospitality industry’s standards, is a key component of all TISOH’s certificate and diploma offerings. Our staff and industry professional instructors set appropriate examples by interacting with students, and each other, in the spirit of hospitality.
