*Attendance at an intake/registration session for Culinary Arts Training is mandatory, however during COVID-19 school closures, we await Ministry of Education directives. Once intake/ registration can resume, please be prepared to complete literacy testing and participate in an interview (perhaps virtually). By doing this at an intake session, we can determine your motivations, capabilities and interests in the program as well as your future goals. From there, we can help you achieve success. All individuals with some previous culinary employment skills are welcomed, however you do not have to have prior cooking experience or have a completed high school diploma to be accepted.
