The Culinary Management program at Loyalist College has been recognized by the Canadian Forces (CF). Students who graduate from the Culinary Management program at the College will receive advanced standing as a Cook (Apprentice) in the Canadian Forces (subject to successful enrolment in the CF). This results in a higher rate of pay relative to CF members who have not graduated from a CF recognized program.
“Loyalist is a leader in chef training and culinary management,” said Dan Holland, Dean, Schools of Business and Management Studies, Biosciences, and Centre for Justice Studies. “Students are trained by exceptional culinary professors and complete all of the in-class requirements for apprenticeship training in the two-year program. In May, CF recognized our one-year Culinary Skills – Chef Training program and now the Culinary Management program is named on the Canadian Forces College Opportunities Directory. We are pleased to have our culinary programs acknowledged in this way.”
Jim Whiteway, Chair, Schools of Business and Management Studies, Biosciences, and Centre for Justice Studies, said, “Our close proximity to Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton has enabled us to form numerous community partnerships with them. This recent announcement strengthens the relationship on a national level. Our culinary programs are subject to rigorous provincial standards and this recognition by the Canadian Forces is yet another endorsement of the excellence of our programs.”
“We look forward to extending this excellent opportunity to our Culinary Management students,” said John McMahon, Vice-President, Academic. “I would like to applaud the faculty and staff whose high standards of quality and excellence have made this possible.”
