Apart from the programme offered, the faculty is the first education institution in Malaysia that uses the Online Reservation System (ORS) in class learning and training purposes that is in line with the need for a paradigm shift from traditional classroom learning to real-time hands-on practice. The Online Reservation System is accessible by students for training purposes. Since UiTM is the only Institution of Higher Learning in Malaysia that has the access to use the online (real-time) facility, the programme prepares the students with a hands-on training and access to the real-time online ORS system facilities and ability to master the basic reservation and ticketing procedures.
