Work Practicum

The final credit in the program is a work practicum. The student will be placed at a food service establishment determined by availability, student capabilties and\or preference, where they will practice their skills and expand their knowledge.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.


High school students who successfully complete all coursework with a cumulative average of 70% or greater in an accredited trade program may be eligible to write the PATHS exam. Students who receive a 70% or higher on the PATHS exam and who register as an apprentice, will receive a Level 1 technical training exemption for that trade.
