A partnership between skills council People 1st and higher education colleges will see the WorldHost programme taught in venues around the country.
WorldHost was used to train 40,000 people for the Vancouver Winter Games in 2010 and tens of thousands of volunteers ahead of the London Olympics and Paralympics.
The announcement is part of the wider People 1st Inspirational Skills Legacy which also incorporates helping unemployed people into work, tackling gender and age imbalances in the industry, improving customer service standards in Scotland and increasing the amount businesses spend on skills development.
David Allen, People 1st director of Scotland, said: "We want to build on the fantastic work we have seen in the London Olympics and Paralympics and make sure we get a similar impact in customer experience in Scotland in 2014.
"It is about using the Ryder Cup, Commonwealth Games and Homecoming and creating a legacy to give people the skills which industry needs and a tangible pipeline so that people can get a job at the end.
"We now want employers and providers across all our industries in Scotland to step forward and get involved with the various legacy projects we will be delivering."
Mr Allen is keen to attract people from other industries such as retail and also make the hospitality sector more attractive to those coming out of the armed forces.
He also told The Herald more than 4500 people in Scotland have already gone through the WorldHost programme.
Brian Wisdom, People 1st chief executive, who was in Glasgow yesterday for the launch, confirmed the organisation will soon be rolling out an electronic learning version of WorldHost to allow better access to SMEs across Scotland.
He said: "There is a need for a lot of skills in the service economy. We need to communicate that there are significant and good careers to have in tourism and hospitality.
"I think there is a great opportunity in Glasgow to really make a difference."
Marc Crothall, chief executive of the Scottish Tourism Alliance, said: "Industry leaders cannot afford to underestimate the need to raise the current level of professionalism and leadership."
Minister for energy, enterprise and tourism, Fergus Ewing added: "We must ensure that the international events being held here in 2014 create a lasting skills and people legacy for the sector."
