(PRWEB) April 18, 2012
After two years of extensive research, website design and developmental programming, Aspen Colorado Chef Jimmy Nadell has now launched the largest culinary arts project since the James Beard Foundation in 1988. With the assistance of USCA Vice President Chef C. Barclay Dodge and Executive Secretary Jamie Prough, the United States Chef Association is now actively setting the standards for all culinarians in North America.
In unifying chefs from all accredited culinary arts academies under one cause, the USCA will be representing the chef industry by setting the standards for chef certifications and how all chefs obtain their professional titles. USCA Professional Titles are used to signify an educated chef’s professional role or to designate his/her certification level through the United States Chef Association.
The United States Chef Association is a membership trade association available to all culinary enthusiasts, waiters, bartenders, maître d's, sommeliers, home gourmets, and chefs of all levels. The USCA will rapidly advance a chefs culinary arts career through education, membership and certifications. Professional chefs whom have graduated from accredited culinary arts academies may advance to four levels of online testing for chef certifications.
USCA certified chefs will have incredible career advantages over non-members and uncertified chefs to rapidly advance their culinary career to executive level positions in today’s highly competitive culinary career markets. Once members have successfully met all requirements and have undergone a vigorous USCA examination, they will be recognized as professionals who have achieved competence in their specified field of knowledge as professional chefs.
Once certified and in good standing with the USCA, members will retain their professional titles for three years, at which time a mandatory retesting must be achieved. More information on the USCA Chef Certifications can be found at http://www.uschefassoc.com/chef_certification.php.
Among the benefits USCA members will be eligible for are:
