I have always wanted to be a Chef since I was young … was privileged to get to do my externship at Erna’s Elderberry House where I was offered a job.

WHY ACCREDITATION IS IMPORTANT
Accreditation is the process of evaluating a school or educational training program to determine whether it meets standards set up by an accrediting organization. When you attend an accredited institution, you are attending a school that has undergone a rigorous process that evaluates educational quality. It’s not easy to become or remain an accredited institution. The rules and regulations are strict, precise and designed to protect students. Here are some of the benefits:
• A reliable indicator of quality
• Approved program of study
• Qualified instructors
