NAIT's School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts is one of the most respected culinary and hospitality schools in Canada. Our ongoing industry partnerships ensure our programs remain current and relevant, so NAIT grads get the jobs – and they get the job done.
The School of Hospitality offers four full-time programs. Baking and Retail Meatcutting are one-year certificate programs. Students in the Hospitality Management and Culinary Arts programs can complete either a one-year certificate or a two-year diploma.
Apprenticeship programs in Baking and Cooking consist of paid work experience and short stints in the classroom. Students must be employed as an apprentice before enrolling in apprenticeship classes.
The School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts offers continuing education options for both professional and home chefs.
Professional chefs at the Executive, Executive Sous and Sous Chef levels can now pursue their Certified Chef de Cuisine (CCC) designation at NAIT. The CCC is the highest accreditation for cooks in Canada.
