Northern Virginia Community College (CULINARY ARTS PROGRAM)

Purpose: The Culinary Arts Certificate curriculum is designed for persons seeking skills for employment in culinary
positions and for those presently employed who desire updating skills for the food service industry.
Apprenticeship Program: The Nation’s Capital Chef’s Association (NCCA), in cooperation with the Hospitality
Management Program at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC), offer an Apprenticeship Program that
combines relevant classroom instruction with on-the-job training required for the National Apprenticeship Training
Program of the American Culinary Federation (ACF).
The apprenticeship program may be completed in one and one-half to three years depending on previous course
work and food service work experience. The program requires six thousand hours of on-the-job training as an
apprentice to a qualified chef in a full service restaurant, club, or hotel. While working, the apprentice attends
college classes at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale campus one day per week. Upon completion
of the program, the apprentice will be qualified to sit for the Certified Cook exam through the American Culinary
Federation Educational Institute (ACFEI) and may be classified as a Journeyman Cook through the U.S. Department
of Labor. After three years of class work, the apprentice will be two classes away from the Culinary Arts Certificate
from Northern Virginia Community College.
