Non-Credit Certificates

Jumpstart Your Career

In alliance with Southwestern Oregon Community College's non-credit training certificate program, we are excited to offer a gateway to the resources of college. These non-credit training certificates provide documentation of skill attainment for many entry-level culinary positions. Employers are increasingly seeking ways to document competencies and job skills, and many companies value a workforce credential over academic documentation for initial job placement as well as for promotion or advancement. The focus of providing these certificates is to help you gain the necessary education you need to begin or continue a successful culinary career.

Each culinary training certificate is issued through Southwestern Oregon Community College. For consistency and relevancy, all non-credit certificate courses are reviewed and approved by SOCC on an annual basis. The end result is a powerful and affordable step towards reaching your career goals in the culinary industry.
