Through a dynamic collaboration between AHA Philippines and its mother company, the American Hospitality academy based in Hilton Head, South Carolina, a J1 visa sponsor which hosts students from different parts of the world, students have the opportunity to undergo culinary training in the United States. AHA Phil has also opened its doors to the entry of other internship providers, to allow students the option to pursue their training in other countries, such as Australia, US, Canada, parts of Asia and work assistance in Scandinavian countries and the Middle East.
