In addition to the R&CA online training portal, R&CA members can also access a library of hospitality courses through Typsy.

Typsy is an online training platform for the hospitality industry. Businesses can add their team members to the platform, and then schedule courses out to them on particular topics.

For example, if you would like your front of house staff to watch a series of courses on customer service, you can add your preferred videos to their schedule, and they will receive an immediate notification. At the same time, you could schedule courses on social media to your marketing team. You can then use the dashboard to view statistics on your staff’s engagement and the overall success of the training. It’s a quick and simple platform, not to mention an amazing opportunity to increase your whole team’s learning and development.

Typsy’s courses are delivered by leaders in the hospitality industry, including World Barista Champion Sasa Sestic, and Appetite for Excellence Young Waiter of the Year Brooke Adey. The diverse library includes courses on coffee making, wine knowledge, customer service, menu engineering, food photography, management, social media marketing and a range of other topics. Typsy adds new courses every week, so you never have to stop learning.

You can start a 10 day free trial at Typsy if you would like to explore the course library. No credit card required. After the trial you will be automatically downgraded to a free membership and you can enjoy selected complimentary courses every month.

Premium memberships are $26 US per month and you can cancel at any time. Learn more here.

Business memberships (including logins for 8 staff members) start at $59 US per month ($7.50 p/m per additional login). You can learn more here.
