The UFV Culinary Arts program trains aspiring cooks to work in all styles of kitchens: small family-style restaurants, large multinational hotels, or health care institutions.
All cooking students are registered as cook apprentices with the Industry Training Authority (ITA). Upon successful completion of the program, eligible students can write both the Professional Cook One and Professional Cook Two Certificate of Qualification exams.
Sample topics include:
Culinary arts professionals can work anywhere from cruise ships to exclusive resorts; from safari tours to movie sets; or from oil drilling platforms to five-star restaurants. If you land a job as a professional cook in the tourism industry you may both work and enjoy extended periods of leisure in some of the world's top travel destinations. Or you may find employment close to home in a family restaurant, a multinational hotel, or with a local caterer.
