Pasadena, Calif. (Vocus) September 16, 2008
California School of Culinary Arts has earned programmatic accreditation from the American Culinary Federation Foundation Accrediting Commission for its Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Arts Associate of Occupational Studies Degree Program.
Accreditation by American Culinary Federation Foundation Accrediting Commission assures that a program meets standards and competencies set for faculty, curriculum and student services and is recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation.
"We are pleased to be recognized by American Culinary Federation, the nation's foremost authority on culinary arts," said CSCA president Tony Bondi. "The accreditation is an honor for our faculty, staff and students."
A team from ACFFAC performed an on-site inspection of CSCA examining the curriculum, equipment, facility and safety, as well as faculty and staff credentials. California School of Culinary Arts department chair Jeffrey Coker, Certified Culinary Educator and Certified Chef de Cuisine, was instrumental in his involvement during the accreditation process and has been appointed as program coordinator for all relations with ACFFAC.
"The accreditation process is extremely stringent," said Coker. "The recognition is a testament to the standards of quality at CSCA."
California School of Culinary Arts also secured ACFFAC educational assurance in 2006- the highest recognition available through the culinary authority for non-degree programs - for its Le Cordon Bleu Pâtisserie & Baking Diploma Program.
