Less time. Lower cost. Hands-on training in small classes.

Our 6- to 16-week Certification programs teach you exactly what you need to know to hit the ground running. Convenient schedules allow you to study full time or part time, mornings, afternoons, or at night after work!

Choose between our 120-hour Cuisine Certificate, the 108-hour Pastry Certificate, or the combined 228-hour Professional Certificate in the Culinary Arts.

You get to choose your rate of study, from a few hours a week, to our new Accelerated Program which has nine hours a day of hands-on practice and guidance. Customize your schedule!

Our Chef Instructors have real-world experience. Most have owned and/or ran major restaurants and bakeries. If you’re thinking about opening your own business, you’ll want to know our Chef Instructors!
