DescriptionThis one-year Ontario College Certificate program is designed to help start your career as a baker or pastry chef. Students receive practical, theoretical and hands-on training in the areas of baking, cake decorating, sanitation and safety and shop management. Students spend approximately 60 percent of their time practising in Algonquin`s on-campus baking and pastry laboratories.

Students receive many opportunities to be involved in real-world experiences, both at the College and at various hotels, restaurants and event facilities to further refine and develop their knowledge and skills. Students have the opportunity to participate in various events, competitions and activities that the program is involved in throughout the community, in order to complete a mandatory 40-hour field placement in level 02, which is required for graduation from the program. All students are required to participate in food handling sanitation courses in a baking lab.
