Course Description

Are you an experienced industry professional looking for more than a standard cook’s qualification, or perhaps dreaming of managing your own professional kitchen? This course will equip you with the skills for both!

You will learn all facets of organising a professional kitchen including selection, preparation, executing and cooking different menus and techniques. You will cover hygiene and safety procedures, staffing, environmental considerations, seasonal produce, quality control, stock control, bulk cooking, catering revenue and costs, finance, leadership, management and human resources. 

If you are a qualified cook or possess significant experience this course can lead to opportunities to work at a senior level in venues around Australia or the world.

As an apprentice working in the industry, we can vary this course to incorporate components of your workplace experience. However you will still need to attend scheduled class time to complete this qualification.

Work placement/industry experience

You will be taught by some of the best in the business, in our specialist training kitchens with state-of-the-art equipment. As an apprentice, you will learn aspects on the job with your employer, along with support from our trainers and assessors.
