Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
Keiser University’s Center for Culinary Arts, located at the Sarasota, Melbourne, and Tallahassee campuses, was ranked 18th of the 50 Best Culinary Schools in the United States by Best Choice Schools, and the highest ranked culinary program in Florida. The Center for Culinary Arts offers an Associate of Science degree in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts.
The culinary schools throughout the country were ranked based on hands-on experience, internship/externship opportunities, student operated restaurants, modern facilities, and a solid reputation in the industry. The schools had to be nationally accredited or accredited by the American Culinary Federation.
“After working to cultivate incredible faculty who can share their talents with our students, this is an honor to be acknowledged by Best Choice Schools for our exceptional Center for Culinary Arts,” stated Dr. Arthur Keiser, CEO and Chancellor of Keiser University. “We are proud to share our ranking with our students and graduates who have enrolled in this program to have the opportunity to compete in the competitive workforce that is constantly seeking new and innovative chefs.”
Per the Best Choice Schools website, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the demand for chefs and head cooks at restaurants and other establishments will grow nine percent faster than most other industries in the country.
The Keiser University Center for Culinary Arts programs are recognized as Exemplary by the American Culinary Federation and have received Recognition of Quality Culinary Education from the World Association of Chefs Society, one of only six schools acknowledged in the United States. Keiser University began offering the culinary arts program at the Tallahassee campus in 1998 and expanded it to the Melbourne campus in 2004 and then to the Sarasota campus in 2005. Currently enrollment between the three campuses is 175.
Keiser University’s Sarasota Center for Culinary Arts designated a student training kitchen as the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Regional Chef Training Facility at Keiser University. There are currently three facilities which have been given this very prestigious distinction: Kapiolani Community College in Hawaii, the Culinary Institute of Oregon, as well as Keiser University in Sarasota, Florida.
