Professional Cook Program

/Professional Cook Program
The Whistler Institute, Vancouver Community College, BCIT and Ts’zil Learning Centre are partnering to measure demand for delivery of a local ITA Professional Cook Program.
Why look at local delivery of the program?
There are a shortage of cooks in the Sea to Sky region and the existing training is currently only offered in the lower mainland which adds the expense of travel, accommodation, and missed work for local residents.
What is the ITA Professional Cook Program?
The ITA Professional Cook Program prepares learners for employment in the food industry by providing an authentic learning experience in industry kitchens to develop their culinary knowledge, skills, and professionalism.

The program partners are currently conducting research to understand demand within the corridor.

There are 2 surveys as part of this research, one for prospective students of the program, and one for local employers of Cooks:

Your feedback will help us understand the culinary training needs of the local workforce.
