The ACFEF Quality Program status is a recognition earned by non-degree granting culinary programs that offer training and education (as opposed to qualification requirements for ACFEF accreditation). Programs that qualify include 1) Specialized or single subject programs, 2) Formalized demonstration classes, 3) Online educational programs, or 4) International non-degree culinary programs that market to American students.
The ACFEF performed a full evaluation and inspection of Colorado Culinary Academy, and determined that they meet or exceed all the criteria for this prestigious endorsement. The ACFEF recognition is for three years at which time another evaluation will be conducted.
“The Colorado Culinary Academy program is of great value to those looking for a degree alternative,” said Thomas Macrina, CEC®, CCA®, AAC® and ACF’s National President. “We are excited to recognize them with this certificate of quality and hope that they continue to excel.”
