While the different segments of the hospitality and tourism industry have their own unique characteristics, they all share the same mission and heritage-serving the guest or customer. The segments of hospitality and tourism are fine dining, catering, hotel and motel food service, casual family restaurants, chef-owned bistros, quick-service dining, national chains, national parks, resorts, casinos, stadiums, theme parks, cruise lines, and on-site foodservice operations such as hospital, collegiate, and company cafeterias. They all possess a common future as one of the most dynamic employment and career fields available. The Culinary Arts Certificate prepares individuals for entry-level chef positions. Students will study the fundamentals of classical and contemporary cuisine, sanitation, nutrition, purchasing, cost control, kitchen management, and restaurant procedures. A range of different cuisines are taught from basic levels, to intermediate, to advanced. The curriculum is designed for the entry-level student with no previous work experience or formal training in the profession, as well as for industry professionals seeking to raise their skills.
