This structural change inspired a name change and the school became known as The Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality Training Institute.
In 1996, the name underwent another change, becoming The Trinidad and Tobago Hospitality and Tourism Institute (TTHTI) – a name that more fully reflected the scope of the Institute’s products and services and its place within the hospitality and tourism industry.
