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.


Students who successfully complete the accredited program with an accumulative average of 70% or better in the trade subjects and level for which the program was accredited, gain employment and register as an apprentice within two years of graduating, will receive credit for Level 1 in-school technical training and 1350 hours in the Cook Apprenticeship program.

Continuous Program Improvement

MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
