An article presents the results of research based on influence of cluster technologies on the process of social-and-economic development of the region. Foreign and local experience of clustering has been analyzed in economics; the main advantages of cluster structures providing upgrade of competitive ability of the regions and innovative area development have been shown. Restrictions of cluster usage have been defined in Russian practice. Based on the example of creation and development of North Caucasian tourist cluster, problems of cluster technologies usage have been revealed in management of regional development and the main of them is the problem of staffing. To solve this problem the authors have developed a model of a field educational cluster in the sphere of tourism and service, which is based on the estimate of the amount of personnel resources and existing educational potential of the region. In addition they recommended an organizational and functional structure of a corporate university and created an interaction model between assessment center and certification with executive bodies, educational facilities and interested organizations. Realization of suggested events will contribute a successful fulfillment of one of the biggest projects in Russia based on cluster technologies usage.
