Culinary Certifications: Are They Really Worth the Hype?
If you would rather tackle the intricacies of cake decorating or follow a beef wellington recipe with exact precision than sit in an office all day, your heart may be calling to the culinary industry. Working in the food preparation sector is not for those who merely get a hankering for fine dining on special occasions, but for those rare talents that put special care into every meal they craft, whether it be a simple macaroni and cheese or a classic French croquembouche. While professional chef certifications are not always needed to enter this line of work, training through a reputable institution like the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy will put you on the fast track to success if cooking is your passion.
We Adapt to Changes in the Industry
If you do some research into the available chef and cookery courses in South Africa, you will find lots of options. What sets us apart at CTIA is our professional team which is committed to providing students with cutting-edge training that keeps up with the industry. Cooking techniques, technologies, and best practices are continually evolving, and we do what it takes to ensure our students remain abreast of the latest cuisine trends and industry requirements. Our culinary certifications are, therefore, relevant and in line with both national and global advancements in the field.
Study at Your Own Pace – With Full Support
If given the opportunity, many students would prefer to study full-time on campus, but we understand that not everyone can. Some students may feel hesitant about part-time or online studies, as they fear they will face a lack of support – but our engaging programmes are different. We ensure that even if you are studying part-time or through our E-learning platform at home, you will receive continual support and the opportunity to interact with both lecturers and students. Our open-door policy means we are here to walk the road with you, every step of the way.
Achieve a Greater Level of Workplace Confidence and Professionalism
One major advantage of receiving the right training and certifications is that you are given a competitive edge over those who have not pursued any culinary qualifications. Our courses are created to equip students with the skills they need to step into any new job with the utmost confidence and professionalism. Our programmes don’t just prepare students for the practical requirements of their careers but empower them with the right mindset to reach their goals.
