A high school diploma or GED equivalent is required for Le Cordon Bleu's programs.
Within the parameters of this Le Cordon Bleu program, students have the opportunity to acquire knowledge of fundamental baking and cooking techniques and to develop customer service, procurement, and management skills. Hands-on training will take place in actual Le Cordon Bleu kitchens, where students will be guided by professional chefs.
