Culinary Certificate Program (CCP)

The Culinary Certificate Program (CCP) is a 16-week long study into the basics of culinary arts. This program mirrors the first half of the Professional Chef’s Program, so that in this program students learn the basics of baking and savory cooking. This structure makes it easy for a student to transfer into the Professional Chef’s Program if desired. This program consists of a 19-hour a week schedule that breaks down into two 8-hour labs and one 3-hour seminar per week.

Our Educational Objectives and Philosophy

The objective of the Culinary Certificate Program is to introduce the student to the science of cooking. In 16 weeks, students will be exposed to food chemistry and the proper techniques of classical culinary preparation through hands-on laboratory training. This intensive program is designed to give students a solid foundation in savory cooking and baking. The knowledge and confidence gained through the successful completion of the program will prepare graduates for entry-level employment.
