The practice question anywhere so is not actual, as in the hotel and restaurant sphere. Service of a VIP-class does not forgive mistakes by inexperience, and therefore to a personnel set here approach with all gravity.
At the Swiss schools and the Swiss Education Group institutes preparing shots for the industry of hospitality, the practician begins already at the first year, almost from first day. Work on result – whether it be laying of tables, preparation of dishes, drawing up of business plans or design of new services (to what, however, still it it is necessary to "grow") makes not less than 50 % of training.

In Cеsar Ritz College, for example, from the crane "Evian" flows, and from windows the view of Lake Geneva opens. However on an admiring of time is not present, as from 6th morning to the 8th evening students work hard for the benefit of future career, being trained in higher education institutions of Switzerland.
It is important that during practice semester they do not pay for training, and receive money for the first labor steps. The monthly salary of trainees makes from 2168 to 2450 Swiss francs a month. During foreign practice of a salary is slightly higher.
