Learning Cost – If you have been working as a chef in the past and you have gained experience and the necessary qualifications then this is an ideal time to start learning again. A course length of one year is usually recommended as this is the minimum amount of time it takes to achieve a standard C certificate level. This can vary depending on the course provider – some providers may offer courses which are longer, increasing your potential to progress further in your career. However, a shorter course is also a more affordable option, which is very helpful for those people who need to cook but cannot afford the fees which would be required if studying full time. You can find out more about the different C certificate courses offered on our website by accessing the menu and course description.
Qualification – When you sign up for a C certificate course you will be awarded your certificate. There is no limit to the number of courses you can take as long as they are approved by the relevant regulatory body. Once you have passed your training and received your certificate you will be able to apply to work in a foodservice or hospitality environment either in a large commercial operation or in your local area. Some providers may also offer employment after the completion of your course. In order to be successful you should possess excellent customer service skills and a strong background in either the hospitality or catering industry.
Course Outcomes – There are various certificate courses which can be completed. Some will provide you with more in-depth training in particular areas, whilst others will be general training courses. The outcome of each course will depend upon the provider and the type of course it is. Some providers offer their clients the opportunity to complete their course at home, which could be very useful for those who are self-directed and do not wish to attend courses in restaurant environments. Others provide their customers with the ability to attend courses through the internet – this is often the preferred option. Whichever way you choose to take your course you will be provided with everything you need to successfully complete the course.
Certificate IV – This is the highest level of training available. Certificate IV allows for people to cook in more complicated and difficult settings than were previously seen as possible. A good example of this level of training would be in a fine dining restaurant environment. This level of certificate is normally awarded when you have successfully completed all levels of C certificate training. Your certificate would demonstrate that you have completed the various requirements to be able to take on the role of chef in a fine dining restaurant setting.
Certificate V – This is the certification granted for people wishing to work as commercial chefs in high profile restaurants. As well as being able to cook, these chefs must also be able to prepare sauces, soups, desserts and other delicate dishes. To qualify for this certificate you must have completed the preparation stage of your course and have been awarded your qualification. Completion of a course as a chef is often accompanied by an exam – this exam is usually taken by a member of the business who is responsible for hiring their staff. Once a chef has been accredited they may apply for a Certificate VI or VII. If you wish to progress to the next level, such as becoming BChec master chef, you must obtain a further two years’ worth of training.
