About the course

About the course

Our cookery course can prepare you to be supervisor or team leader in the kitchen. You’ll gain the skills and confidence to operate independently or with limited guidance from others and use discretion to solve non-routine problems.

With classroom lessons and a practical placement, you’ll be ready to work in a variety of venues such as restaurants, hotels, clubs, pubs, cafés, and coffee shops, or within your own small business.

Please not: this commercial cooking course caters to Australian and international standards, requires the handling and tasting of alcohol, and does not include Halal products. We use products containing alcohol and pork during assessment.
