16-Week Diploma Program

About the Program

This is a 16-week diploma program which teaches students the basics of classical cookery and pastry in five hands-on classes per week.

Cookery and pastry classes are coupled with theory classes focused on expanding student learning in subjects related to the culinary and hospitality fields including: sanitation, communications, writing, food costing, food history, nutrition, wine and kitchen management.

The program will run from June 3rd, 2019 – September 20th, 2019 and successful students will graduate from the program with a Cook: Basic – Level 1 Diploma.

See our courses page for an overview of the program. 


This program is approved as a vocational program under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005

*Students are responsible for purchasing their own kitchen tools (such as knives), uniforms and an iPad for course manuals.  Cost will vary depending on student choices.
