Culinary Arts

The Culinary Arts program is a one-year program that will provide students with a wide-range of experience in the culinary and food service industry with a heavy importance on sanitation and safety. After completing the ServSafe unit and safety training, students will operate our Starting Place Restaurant located at the Mecosta-Osceola Career Center. All students will rotate in a variety of restaurant positions gaining valuable work experience in food preparation, customer service, teamwork, commercial foods and the hospitality industry. Students may earn the American Heart Certifications: Heartsaver CPR, AED and First Aid. Additionally, students have the opportunity to obtain their ServSafe certifications in Allergen, Food Handler and Manager. Students may return for a second year for Advanced Training. They will focus on Work Based Learning off campus and will continue learning in a partnership with Ferris State University (FSU) through their Restaurant and Food Industry Management program for the opportunity to earn college credit toward an undergraduate Certificate.
