Kitchen Operations

About the Course

This qualification provides a pathway to work in kitchen operations in organisations such as restaurants, hotels, catering operations, clubs, pubs, cafs, and coffee shops; and institutions such as aged care facilities, hospitals, prisons, and schools.

Possible job titles include:
breakfast cook
catering assistant
fast food cook
sandwich hand
takeaway cook.

No occupational licensing, certification or specific legislative requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.
