The Prep Cook program gives students the basic safety skills, knowledge and credentials to start a career in busy commercial kitchens, restaurants and resorts. The program will run from September to December in the Port Alberni teaching kitchen.
“This program is a great first step for anyone interested in working in the food service industry,” said Chef Al Irving, NIC culinary instructor. “Students learn important kitchen skills and how to prepare a wide range of staple dishes, with lots of hands-on practice in our teaching kitchen.”
Students learn to prepare soups, stocks, sauces, vegetable dishes, salads, sandwiches, cookies and quick breads. Students will also complete the program with industry certifications in Occupational First Aid, Foodsafe and WHMIS.
