KSU’s Culinary Apprenticeship Certificate program is proud to announce the addition of Murphy‘s and Paces & Vine to its group of training sites for future chefs. This program is housed in the College of Continuing and Professional Education and begins Sept. 9. It provides a hands-on educational experience as students work with professional chefs in restaurants around the metro Atlanta area.
Pam Moss, culinary program manager, said, “This exclusive opportunity puts our students right in the kitchen with these culinary experts for a one-of-a-kind learning experience. Our partnership with Murphy’s and Paces & Vine will continue to enhance the quality of this program.”
Park 75 at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta, Villa Christina at Perimeter Summit, Endive Catering, Fire Stone Wood Fired Pizza & Grill, Canoe and The Commons at KSU are also included in the 420-hour apprenticeship site rotation. Moss said, “This intensive training is extremely beneficial for our students. They are being trained by some of the best chefs in the area.”
The Culinary Apprenticeship Certificate program is modeled after the European approach of culinary education and is designed to combine classroom instruction and practical application. A professional kitchen at KSU Center (3333 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw, 30144) serves as the classroom where students will be taught by an experienced chef. Knife skills, nutrition and the entire cooking process, from food and equipment prep to plating and serving exquisite dishes, are part of the curriculum.
A free Culinary Apprenticeship Certificate program information session is July 30 at 8 p.m. at KSU Center. Staff and recent Culinary graduates will be available to answer questions, and all attendees will receive an exclusive tour of the Culinary classroom. This information session is held in conjunction with the Career Training Expo. From 6-8:30 p.m., the public is invited to an open house to learn about certificate programs such as Paralegal, Project Management, Residential Landscape Design, Medical Assisting and more. Everyone will receive a 10% discount coupon for registration on a certificate program, and financial aid advisers from KSU, Wells Fargo and Cobb Works will be available. There will be light refreshments and a drawing for an iPad mini. For more information, visit ksuexpo.com or call 470-578-6765.
