From the business side of hospitality, Humber’s Culinary Skills certificate program prepares you for a career as a professional chef. Gain theoretical and practical skills while learning in cutting-edge labs and real-world settings with the latest kitchen technology and equipment.

Many graduates of this one-year program continue on for another year and complete the Culinary Management diploma program or enter the Cook Apprenticeship program.

The curriculum for this program is similar to the first year of the Culinary Management program. This allows students to transition into that program after the first semester or at the end of the second semester with bridging courses. Alternatively, students are able to move into the Cook Apprenticeship program, provided they have an eligible employer.
