NAHLE’ STRATEGIC GOAL: Advance engineering professionalism in the hotel & lodging industry through education and training.

Recognizing the ever present need within the hotel engineering community to provide ‘uniform’ education and training programs specifically tailored for hotel and residential-lodging facility engineers and maintenance personnel, the National Association of Hotel & Lodging Engineers offers curriculum and training packaged in eLearning modules designed for online delivery via the Internet. These modules focus on providing training for the numerous line-employees performing routine maintenance through the director of engineering or facility maintenance managing a large full-service high-rise hotels or senior housing communities. NAHLE’s curriculum is intended to be comprehensive and will cover subjects in small learning modules such as building systems, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, lighting, landscaping, swimming pools, life safety, vertical transport, etc. to name a few. Upon completion of a program learning modules NAHLE issues the engineer candidate a “certificate of completion.” It is NAHLE’s education mission to teach everyone on staff more about the environment in which they work thereby empowering each employee to better deal with the challenges associated with their facility’s engineering and maintenance.

Continuing education and training of the maintenance staff for any building, not just hotels, maximizes owner’s investment by protecting capital assets and increases guest satisfaction. For those of you already in the industry, accredited training provides a well-defined career path for advancement. And, for those of you wanting to enter the field of hotel/facility engineering and maintenance, advance training provides a prospective employer a way to gauge your knowledge and commitment.


NAHLE is proud to announce the completed development of our exclusive hotel engineering and senior housing facilities maintenance training for online distribution. Our training is available directly from our website and will only be available to our members. Our training includes a number of traditional hotel-centric educational offerings and we have recently completed a training program for residential care facilities and long term lodging facilities. Our programs are administered by our online ‘Learning Management System’ partner, LITMOS. NAHLE believes online delivery as a natural solution for workers who can’t get away from work or family for a regional seminar, but want to further their on-the-job knowledge through advanced learning and training. NAHLE training will teach one how to stay up with current technologies, reduce operating and maintenance costs and protect building assets by applying maintenance and engineering solutions to your daily job and the hotel property where you work.


NAHLE’s initial educational and training programs were developed in conjunction with the American Hotel & Lodging Institute. If you want to learn more about your area of specialty or aspire to become the head of your hotel or facility’s maintenance, NAHLE offers a number of training programs focusing specifically on maintenance and understanding the engineering theory behind the job. Helping you grow your knowledge base will also help you keep that competitive edge to succeed. No matter what your specialty is, NAHLE has the curriculum, instruction, and prestige to boost your success!


As NAHLE’s core strategy is to be at the forefront of hospitality engineering and maintenance education, our intent is to deliver knowledge to our members in various forums and formats including articles published in our newsletter, current product information, federal regulations, national codes and standards and industry best practices. In addition to providing eBooks and eLearning for both maintenance and engineering professionals such as yourself, NAHLE has conducted several learning webinars partnering with Center for Disease Control and ASHRAE and variuos industry vendors on subjects ranging from reducing Legionella disease to mitigating bed bugs and other unwanted pests.

NAHLE brings all this information together into one single website location dedicated to the profession of lodging engineering and maintenance. Hospitality professionals recognize NAHLE as the premier library for hotel-and-facility engineering and maintenance information.We invite you to invest in your professional growth and the continued success of your property by attending one of our future training seminars, take an eLearning module or simply browse our online library.


NAHLE’s hotel-centric courses are specifically designed to compliment the American Hotel & Lodging Educational Institute’s Certified Maintenance Manager (CMM) and Certified Executive of Engineering (CEOE) programs. Unlike the AH&LEI, NAHLE will not require verification of employment to become certified. NAHLE will also add core competencies to our certification programs focusing on the participant’s mastering of the knowledge base absent verified field experience. We ask that you continue your support of AH&LA and their Educational Institute for all your educational and advocacy needs.
