About the Program

This two-year diploma offers a unique opportunity for students to apply skills learned in labs and classes on a paid five-month co-op term.

Through demonstrations, lectures and hands-on practice, students are provided knowledge and techniques of quality food preparation and presentation. They gain an understanding of the complexity of kitchen management and experience real-life production. Co-op education work terms in the program enable the student to develop the skills and enhance his/her knowledge learned in the college setting.

In addition, courses such as communication, computer skills, marketing, small-business management and nutrition ensure graduates are well rounded to meet the demands of industry.

After completion of the co-op industry training and experience, graduates are eligible to write the Provincial Trade of Cook Certificate of Qualification examination and have the option to continue their apprenticeship in industry to earn their Red Seal certification. There are also many options for students to continue in culinary arts graduate certificate programs in Canada and internationally.
