This coming winter Efling will continue to cooperate with Menntaskólinn í Kópavogi to offer vocational courses for workers in kitchens and cafeterias. The aim of these courses is to improve the qualifications of employees in doing their assigned jobs in canteens and kitchens. The emphasis is placed on increasing professional knowledge on food and gastronomy as well as giving adults the opportunity for professional education in this field. The vocational courses I and II focus on communication, computer skills, hygiene and the basics of dietetics and vegan cuisine. The vocational course III focuses on menu creation, cooking for vegans and people with food allergies and intolerances.
Studying in the professional courses is evaluated for credits in studies of the food and catering industry, including the study of chef and food technicians.
- Vocational course I will be taught October 3rd – November 23rd 2022, Mondays and Wednesdays, 15:00 – 17:30.
- Vocational course II will be taught January 30th – March 27th 2023, Mondays and Wednesdays, 15:00 – 17:30.
