A number of our instructors have international experience, and several more have won multiple awards. Many are former NAIT grads, back to share their knowledge with the next generation of students.
Our instructors are dedicated to student success, mentoring them in the classroom and through our various student clubs. The manager and coaches of Culinary Team NAIT have also guided our students to a number of provincial, national and international awards.
Our full-time faculty is complemented by a number of visiting chefs and the Hokanson Chef in Residence.
Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)
