CCC Offering Culinary Certificate

by Press Release-CCC | Aug 24, 2007
CCC Offering Culinary Certificate Things are really cooking at Camden County College now that CCC has begun offering a career certificate in the culinary field.

The college has partnered with Camden County Technical Schools (CCTS) to offer a program of study aimed to help meet the rapidly growing demand for qualified personnel in the food services industry. Students who complete the program will be prepared for entry-level positions in restaurants, hotels, long-term-care facilities, childcare centers and casinos.

The 31-credit culinary certificate program combines classroom study and field experience. At CCC, courses in hospitality, nutrition, food safety and event planning will provide professional knowledge of trade regulations and site/service management. Practical skills will be developed through hands-on work in CCTS’s state-of-the-industry kitchen facilities.

Students enrolling in the program will have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills as they increase their technical competence. They also will learn key terminology used within various segments of the culinary profession.

“Students who complete the certificate program will be prepared to go on to earn associate’s or bachelor’s degrees in this area,” said Maureen Reidenauer, director of CCC’s Hospitality Programs. “Those who feel that a degree is out of reach can attend this program, develop new skills and realize that it’s not as difficult a goal as they once thought.”

For additional information on CCC’s culinary certificate program, contact Reidenauer at (856) 227-7200, ext.4341, or
