Professional Cook for a Day

If you are interested in Professional Cooking as a career, but are not 100% sure that cooking is for you, then we would like to give you a glimpse into what it would be like through our, "Student for a Day" program. Join us for a free one-day trainee session.

What you can expect:

  • You will be a part of our regular class.
  • You will be given a full uniform to wear that day.
  • You will shadow and assist a current Culinary Arts student in their daily routine and assignments that they have been given.

To become a Professional Cook Trainee for a day, you require a valid BC FoodSafe certificate. FoodSafe programs are available through our Continuing Education department.  Once you have obtained a FoodSafe certificate, or if you already have one, please contact:

A waiver form must be filled out and signed before you may proceed. Once all is verified, you will meet with one of the instructors and set up the most convenient time for your first day as a Professional Cook Trainee.

We look forward to meeting you!
