Recipients have proven that they can “do the math” and interpret the results.  They have demonstrated an ability to analyze various types of hotel industry data and to make strategic inferences based upon that analysis.  Certification also confirms a comprehensive understanding of benchmarking and performance reports.   Recipients receive a certificate and are able to use the CHIA designation on their business cards and resumes.
