Food service cooks prepare meals and snacks for large numbers of people—and they are in demand in restaurants, hotels, casinos, health and educational institutes, remote mining camps and more.

  • kitchen tools and equipment

When you graduate from the Food Service Cook program, you’ll have the knowledge and skills for a wide variety of jobs. Work full or part time in coffee shops, restaurants and hotels. Look for positions in health care and educational institutes, fly-in fishing resorts, mining and construction camps, and more.
