Are you a high school graduate, looking for a new career or a lifelong learner? Do you love to cook? Do you thrive in high-energy environments?

Then check out Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Professional Cooking program. Professional Cooking is Saskatchewan’s most recognized culinary training programand is quickly becoming a nationally and internationally recognized credential—it’s your fast track to a career.

Program participants gain fundamental skills in food preparation, cooking, time management, critical thinking and develop the confidence to advance their career in the world of food.

 Our graduates are working as cooks, kitchen managers, banquet chefs, around the province, across Canada, on cruise ships, in vacation resorts and at upscale fishing lodges.

Professional Cooking is a one-year (35 week) certificate program offered at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw campus and Saskatchewan Polytechnic Prince Albert campus. We’ll give you the kind of hands-on training you need to work as part of a culinary team.

  • basic cooking principles
  • baking
  • food presentation
  • kitchen management
  • meat, seafood and poultry preparation
  • quantity food production
  • short-order food production
  • safety, sanitation and WHMIS

Approximately 70% of your “class” time is hands-on training in Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s well-equipped kitchens. You’ll also get hands-on experience preparing foods for the campus cafeteria.
