This Certificate III in Commercial Cookery qualification reflects the role of commercial cooks who use a wide range of well-developed cookery skills and sound knowledge of kitchen operations to prepare food and menu items. Using discretion and judgement, they work with some independence and under limited supervision using plans, policies and procedures to guide work activities.

How you study

Apprentices undertaking this Certificate III in Commercial Cookery course receive tuition at ICAE’s Rapid Creek campus, and participate in practical assessments at their workplace. This ensures that apprentices actually demonstrate their workplace competence in a real working environment – the ultimate confirmation of work readiness. Supervising chefs can ensure that their apprentices are ready to demonstrate their skills, and apprentices can prepare and perform in their own kitchen in an environment they are familiar with.

Attending college on a regular basis ensures that you receive personal support to help you keep up with the required theory, and keeps you on track to achieve your qualification. ICAE teachers help you prepare for all your assessment tasks, and if you require additional support you can always contact your teachers for assistance.
