University of South Carolina Beaufort students now have the opportunity to get hands-on training at a center focused on event-management and hospitality.

So far, USCB students have gained experience by volunteering at the Island Recreation Association's Snow Day event as well as at a wine judging by the Hilton Head Island Wine & Festival.

The center officially opened on Wednesday and operates with the focus of helping the town attract tourists. Training center staff and students will help create and run new festivals and will support current events.

The center offers noncredit and credit courses along with training and certification for high school and college students, industry professionals, and residents.

To learn more about the training center's opening, head over to The Island Packet.
