Instructor: Daniel Lundberg
Employed in the foodservice industry and no time to attend school full time to obtain certification? Become certified through First Coast Technical College’s Culinary Apprenticeship program sponsored by the American Culinary Federation (ACF). The Greater Northeast Florida Chefs Association endorses FCTC as the educational provider and enrollment now accepted.
ACF’s highly respected, national apprenticeship program allows students to master cooking and baking skills in the FCTC classroom and on-the-job under the direction of a qualified, trained chef. Available to individuals at least 18 years of age, a high-school graduate or equivalent, apprenticeship allows individuals the ability to work full-time while enrolled. Selection, employment and training of apprentices are without discrimination of race, color, religion, national origin, or gender.
Apprentices gain management and supervisory knowledge; develop basic principles of nutrition, food/beverage composition; understand requirements for proper food handling, sanitation and hygiene; and acquire a professional work ethic necessary for success in the hospitality industry.
Apprenticeship takes approximately two years to complete and prepares one for American Culinary Federation professional certified sous chef (CSC) or certified pastry chef (CPC) status.
