The Culinary Quick Start program is a fast-track four-week course that prepares students for jobs in the restaurant industry as a prep or line cook. During the course, students will become ServSafe certified, sharpen their knife skills, develop fundamental cooking skills and more. Courses include food and kitchen workplace safety, prep and production, cooking methods and career skills. Students will also attend a hiring fair where they have the opportunity to network with potential community employers.
The entire program is offered at no cost to participants and does not require any previous restaurant experience. Over 500 students have already graduated, and the majority of them are now contributing to the local economy in jobs throughout the Denver/Colorado area.
