Providence students come from all walks of life.

Some who enroll in our culinary training program want to learn new skills and make new connections after a job loss. Some want to enhance their skills and pursue better-paying opportunities in the culinary field. Some want to fine-tune their knowledge to start a business. Some are simply seeking a fresh start. 


Everyone who enrolls is supported as an individual as they move through the Providence Culinary Training program and as they establish themselves after graduation.

Technical training includes:


  • Certification in ServSafe® sanitation

  • Basic cooking methods

  • Knife skills

  • Baking and pastry

  • Soups, stocks & sauces

  • Quantity food production

  • Restaurant catering and cookery

Our intensive classes meet five days a week, six hours a day, for 13 weeks, wrapping up with a one week internship at a local restaurant

or foodservice organization.

Scholarships and post-graduation job placement help are available.

Graduates receive a certificate of completion endorsed by Forsyth Technical Community College, Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC, Providence, and the American Culinary Federation
