Certified Culinary Educator

March 22, 2009

I am very curious about your position in the requirements that a Certified Culinary Educator (CCE) must be degreed.  I have been a full time teacher in Florida for over 15 years.  As an Industrial Vocational Educator, I am not required to have a degree.  I understand that the ACF is trying to up the credentials of its certification program however, in my school district alone we have 5 chefs that are full time teachers with teaching certificates but cannot certify as a CCE.  I think this policy is wrong.  What is your opinion?

Certification Exams for All

March 22, 2009

Certification requires a practical exam. The exam is only practical for only a few culinary professionals. It needs to change to encompass more food service professionals. Fine dining, production, and chef/owner should be the three classes added to the current CEC.

Conference/Convention Classes

March 22, 2009

We need more hands-on classes at the conferences.  How can we get more classes provided by the members themselves, who are quite talented  in their own right?
