GLOBAL LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT Interpret Hawai‘i Hawaiian values such as aloha, kuleana, laulima, lōkahi and mālama describe some of the basic guidelines for behavior that were very much a part of everyday living in early Hawai‘i. Today, these values are practiced and reinforced because they work for the benefit of our communities. Many of the Hawaiian values which sustained life in the ahupua‘a are shared by all cultures because they represent the basic building blocks for successful communities. We believe that genuine customer service is composed of taking care of external customers (Ho’okipa Me Ke Aloha) and internal customers-your own employees, (Konohiki Me Ke Aloha). Successful organizations know that if you care for your employees, your employees will, in turn, care for your customers. Therefore, the responsibility to mālama team members and to convey aloha in the workplace belongs to leaders at all levels.

Ho‘okipa Me Ke Aloha (Customer Service with Aloha)

Certification for Hawai‘i’s Professional Tour Guides

It was part of Hawaiian custom to convey “ho`okipa” or “hospitality” when welcoming community and family members, as well as visitors to the islands. Ho`okipa Me Ke Aloha, a culture-rich learning experience based on Hawaiian language and culture, is designed to cultivate your fundamental knowledge of our host culture and traditions while servicing local customers or those visiting from around the globe. From learning about the ahupua`a land management concept, to the roles and responsibilities within an `ohana, you will learn to exemplify “hospitality with aloha.”

This certification recognizes that a professional tour guide has met the required knowledge, skills, and competencies that align with the Hawai‘i Tourism Authority’s “Professional Standards for Ambassadors of Aloha”. The suggested training pathway is the Certificate for Customer Service in Hawai‘i. The certification process involves candidates taking and passing a two-part exam. Both exams are administered at Kapi`olani Community College (KCC) on the same day. Candidates who successfully pass their exams receive a certificate and pin.

Dates: (Tues/Thurs) Sept 13th–Sept 25th Times: 6pm–8pm Costs: $205/person

Konohiki Me Ke Aloha (Leading with Aloha)

Certificate for Customer Service in Hawaii

To complement the Ho‘okipa Me Ke Aloha training program, this course draws on 16 waiwai Hawai’i (Hawaiian values) to explain and demonstrate important leadership functions such as planning, organizing, building, coaching, and motivating teams, solving problems, and resolving conflicts. Using wisdom from these waiwai Hawai’i, learn to lead your teams with aloha. Recommended training program: Ho‘okipa Me Ke Aloha

Whether you are a guest service agent, an account clerk at a tour company, restaurant wait help, sales associate, housekeeping attendant at a hospital, front-line clerk in a government agency, ticket agent at the airport, you are an “Ambassador of Aloha”.

Kapiolani Community College is leading the way in bringing new apprenticeship programs to healthcare and culinary professions in Hawaii. Healthcare professionals at all levels have historically completed a “real world learning experience” under the names of internship, externship, clinical practicum, residency, field work, and other titles. The great majority of these experiences are provided to students in the form of unpaid hours. An apprenticeship has the same two basic components at the “internship” model – real world learning and classroom education. The CRITICAL difference is the apprentice is an employee of the clinical site – and thus the clinical site SELECTS the apprentice. The apprentice is paid during his/her apprenticeship hours. The employer has the opportunity to assign its best and most knowledgeable employees as a mentor for the apprentice. This is a great strategy to ensure the employee understands the employer’s values, institutional knowledge, and the systems and processes from day one of the apprenticeship. Apprenticeships are available as part of the Optometry Assistant, Phlebotomy, Pharmacy Technician, and Community Health Worker programs. Details for the Community Health Worker (CHW) program can be found at Page 13 • Apprenticeships
