How to choose a cooking course?
If you dedicate yourself to the hotel and gastronomy sector and want to maintain a safe position, it is important that you train, one of the options to achieve this is by taking a cooking course. Hotel and gastronomic establishments demand more and more qualified personnel, not only for the preparation of dishes, but also offering the latest trends in their gastronomy sector to the customer.
What should I rely on to choose the right cooking course ?
To find a good cooking course you need to inform yourself and look where you can acquire knowledge according to your level that you with to start at. There are different courses and a great opportunity for different levels, for example: cooking introduction course, professional cooking course, bakery and pastry courses in basic and advanced level. Cocktail course and a wide range of specific short-term cooking courses as well.
To Know and understand what the institute's methodology is and if it is right for you?
Once you define your level and the type of course you want to take, you must consider what is the methodology and learning mode appropriate for you. For example, if you work, how many hours will you spend on learning, studying and putting into practice what you have learned. If you live in a place far from this type of training centres, you should consider whether it would be appropriate to travel to a different area or country for face-to-face courses or if you can take an online course. But as we said before, everything will depend on your level of experience in the kitchen and the commitment you have with this new challenge.
If you take an online cooking course remember that you must have extra time, materials and the equipment necessary to carry out the practices, because we already know that in this type of profession not only the knowledge of the theory is enough. If you decide to take a one on one course, which is recommended for this area, it will be much simpler since you will have the supervision and advice of a professional who will be by your side for the duration of the cooking classes.
The practices in the kitchen?
It is very important that you do the exercises and practices, either in the cooking class or at your work, if you are already dedicating yourself to this item. This will give you more knowledge about the development in the kitchen and teamwork with the rest of your classmates. It is also a good option to start doing a few hours internships to know how the pace is within the workspace and gain experience that will help you on your way to working in a professional kitchen.
The training centres
It is essential that you investigate if they offer you a degree, if they have professional agreements and practices for future job opportunities and in turn enquire about what the students who have already taken classes in the place think. At Chef Academy London we have the endorsement of the ASIC (ACCREDITATION SERVICE for INTERNATIONAL SCHOOLS), so we extend official certificates in National and International Cooking Courses.
