Upon completion of our professional programs, students are sent out on a 6-week apprenticeship for practical, on-the-job training in a food service venue. Apprenticeships are completed at restaurants, with caterers, kitchens in institutional settings, bakeries, as well as manufacturing and business management settings. Students are not paid for their apprenticeship time, and are covered by CKCA’s insurance for the duration of their experience. We are always interested in adding additional apprenticeship venues for our students. If interested in becoming a partnering institution, contact CKCA Dean of Student Affairs Avram Wiseman at Avram@kosherculinaryarts.com

Examples of apprenticeship settings include:

Mike’s Bistro and Mike’s Italian Kitchen
Prime Hospitality Group; The Prime Grill, Solo, Prime Ko
My Most Favorite Food Company
ETC Steakhouse
Abigael’s on Broadway
Ram Catering
Village Crown Catering
