Professional in the Culinary Arts Certificate Program
“On day three what I learned and understood already made the tuition worth it. I have been able to pick up side-work in hotel banquets, and was offered a two month stint cooking in Costa Rica just days after classes ended. I am now seriously valued with my certification.”
