Program Description

Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery

CertificateIVCookery

Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery is a one year course comprising one semester of on-campus study and practical tuition, followed by one semester of paid Industry Placement (students can elect to do unpaid IP if desired). On campus, students learn in our purpose-built commercial kitchen, training under the guidance of our internationally experienced chefs. Whilst on IP, students can undertake up to 45 hours of paid work in a commercial kitchen. This is a very practical course, preparing students for a career as a cook or chef.

This qualification reflects the role of commercial cooks who have a supervisory or team leading role in the kitchen. They operate independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems.

This qualification provides a pathway to work in organisations such as restaurants, hotels, clubs, pubs, cafes and coffee shops, or to run a small business in these sectors.

Possible job titles include:
Chef
Chef de partie
