This course is designed for working chefs who have completed, or almost completed, the 6,000-hour experience requirement needed to sit for the Red Seal examination and who need to review the theory essential to successful completion of the exam. This is not a diploma course, nor do the hours count towards Red Seal or other certifications. The Red Seal preparation course is, however, a very efficient and effective tool to prepare for writing the Red Seal examination and will increase the potential for success significantly.
Note: This is not a Diploma Course and these hours do not count towards your Red Seal. This is a preparatory course for the Red Seal Exam. The exam is with the Ontario College of Trades.
This program does not require approval under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005
