What to Expect
The Baker program follows the current Alberta Apprenticeship Course Outline (pdf) to ensure all students are provided with appropriate training experiences to successfully pass their apprenticeship examinations.
Students get professional, hands-on training in a well-equipped industry-standard bakery in the state-of-the-art Hokanson Centre for Culinary Arts at NAIT Main Campus.
Is This Program For You?
Ideal candidates are highly motivated and display a high degree of creativity. The work is most rewarding for those who enjoy creating things with their hands. It is a fitting occupation for those who like stability and security in their work. To be successful in their trade, bakers need
- good health and physical stamina
- manual dexterity
- the ability to lift up to 20 kilograms
- a responsible attitude about ensuring that public health standards are met
As a student in the Department of Culinary Arts and Professional Food Studies, you’ll get more than just a great hands-on education.

The School of Skilled Trades wants our first-year students to become confident in their abilities, get connected to NAIT through groups, peers and staff, be supported personally and academically, get motivated to complete their program and most importantly enjoy the learning environment here at NAIT.
Being an apprentice student is quite different from being a full-time student. Apprentices are in school for short periods of time and some programs are on satellite campuses. Our goal is to improve communication with apprentices on all campuses to ensure you have access to all the services we have to offer at NAIT for you to be successful.
