The Culinary Arts program consists of the 28-week Professional Cook 1. When entering the program, students are registered as Professional Cook 1 apprentices, gaining technical training while accruing apprentice hours. As a part of the Culinary Arts Certificate, students gain industry work experience and additional apprentice hours.

Work Terms are offered to seasonally restricted careers such as the Professional Chef program for one summer term. This fulfills the ITA industry work hour requirements so that students can obtain their professional certification and the Co-operative Education designation on their certificate.
