Professional Chef Program Overview
Our professional chef diploma program teaches you the technical, financial, managerial and creative skills required to begin on your path to becoming a professional Chef. While completing a diploma program won’t mean walking out of Culinary School and into a high-profile job; through training, theory, practical classes, project and exposure to real life work experiences, you’ll be well on your way when you leave our campus.
Our Professional Chef Diploma Program spans three terms, including the topics listed below. The first two terms of the program are based on a modular learning system, which allows students to learn in a building block style approach. Each topic you learn will build on the next, giving you a step by step understanding of each new section of the program. Each module will be comprised of 5 hours per day; 2 of which will be theory presented in the classroom and 3 of which are hands-on in our student kitchen.
During the third term of your program, you’ll take the skills you’ve learned and truly flourish as Chef. The final term is about learning how to take your technical skills and combine them with leadership, creativity, and a good business sense so that you can not only cook something amazing, but you can manage a kitchen and everything that comes with it.
Each of our programs also include career development, resume writing and portfolio development, along with job search assistance and any necessary certifications to get you started on your career path sooner. Our Professional Chef Diploma Program includes: a Basic Food Safety Certification Test, as well as WHIMIS and Smart Serve Certifications.
