If you are interested in working your way up in the Culinary industry, a certified chef apprenticeship is a cost-effective way to earn your education.
What does it mean to be a certified chef? If you are interested in working your way up through the culinary industry becoming a Certified Sous Chef is an important stepping stone if you want to become an Executive Chef.
In the Certified Chef apprenticeship, you’ll work at a sponsoring restaurant while completing 4,000 hours of hands-on work hours with a sponsoring chef. You will attend class only one night a week. The Certified Chef apprenticeship program is certified by the American Culinary Federation. The program costs $7,000 but some sponsor restaurants offer tuition assistance, plus you’ll be earning a wage while you learn.
Requirements: If you are interested in the Certified Chef apprenticeship, you must be 17 years or older with a high school diploma or GED.
