Culinary Arts - Northlands Parkway Collegiate

The Culinary Arts program is a two section, eight credit program that teaches the basics of commercial cooking & baking. Students will have the opportunity to learn the skills necessary to find employment in a variety of food service areas such as restaurants, hotels, conference centres, and food styling applications.

The Culinary Arts program focuses on theoretical principles and their practical applications.

Courses include outcomes related to:
  • Cooking technique
  • Food handling and nutrition
  • Ingredients and flavour principles
  • Recipes, menus, and food costing
  • Equipment operation and safety

The Culinary Arts program is accredited with Apprenticeship Manitoba.  To qualify for accreditation, a student must achieve an overall average of 70% or higher across all eight credits, they will receive recognition for level one technical (in-class) training in the cook trade. A student must then become a registered apprentice with an employer and complete the remaining required practical hours.

Practical (on-the-job) training hours can be acquired through the High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) – a high school work practicum recognized by Apprenticeship Manitoba.  These hours can be earned during evenings, weekends, or school breaks.
