Apprenticeship is the classic training method of chefs and cooks, and still used almost exclusively in Europe. These programs are linked to each state Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training. When you graduate, you will have the training to begin a career throughout the United States.

Just as great, you earn while you learn. Students spend just one day a week in our labs receiving their training and then work at local restaurants and related facilities through the rest of the week.

Since 1991, the program has operated in conjunction with the Chefs de Cuisine Association of the Quad Cities.

Apprentices work at one of the chapter's 65 approved apprenticeship sites under the supervision of the executive chef to complete a total of 6,000 hours on the job.
