Program Code



All students enrolled in Culinary Management will obtain the in-school outcomes upon graduation. This means that all on-the-job training competencies are the only segment needed for eligibility to write a Certification of Apprenticeship Exam (Red Seal - Inter-provincial Standards Certification). Culinary Management students need to register as apprentices. Confederation College has a support committee to act as a sponsor during their time at school.

Cook Apprentices from the industry can obtain the required in-school training through our "day release" scheduling. Apprentices can attend classes for basic or advanced level on a part-time basis. Class schedules will be 1-3 days part-time ranging from 9 to 17 hours total each week. Apprentices will even have options of when they can attend certain classes.
