A Certificate in the Culinary Arts

A certificate program in culinary training offers the basic skills necessary for entry-level employment in a number of kitchen settings. Certificate programs not only prepare you with specific skills and knowledge, they are flexible in that you can choose times and days that work in your schedule. Because they are honed down to the necessary culinary skills (with no extra required coursework such as math or English) Certificate programs offer speed and the ability to be in the work force quickly. Offered by many of the best culinary schools, Certificates often offer a high degree of credential if they are from a prestigious school. Certificate include an education that focuses directly on the mastery of basic culinary skills such as knife work, safety and sanitation, cooking techniques, preparation and plating, wine and beverage study, and more. Some certificates are designed for those with a Bachelors degree in-hand, as an extension to the education they already possess. This covers those who did not study culinary in their undergraduate degrees, certificate programs offer culinary arts skills to graduates of hospitality management, restaurant management, food science, nutrition/dietetics, or related fields, who have a serious interest in advancing their culinary knowledge.
