Frequently Asked Questions

Our Professional Certification in the Culinary Arts program is $9,800. It includes all of the equipment, materials, books, knives, and uniforms required for the program.

The Professional Certificate in Culinary Arts program takes 12 weeks to complete. 

During the 12 week program, students get hands-on instruction, classroom education, real-world kitchen experience, networking opportunities with local food purveyors and restauranteurs, and additional opportunities for additional off-site experiences.

The primary differences between a culinary arts certificate and a culinary arts diploma are the length of time required and tuition costs.

Certificates and diplomas are suited for different kinds of students:

  • A culinary arts certificate is ideal for the student who wants an affordable professional-level culinary education in the shortest amount of time possible.
  • A culinary arts diploma is better suited for the student who wants additional classes such as Elements of Effective Communication and Human Relations, has 2 or 4 years to invest, and up to $60,000 to spend on a culinary degree.

Many culinary institutes offer school-based certification programs, but we offer certification from the ACF, a nationally-recognized organization with well-known standards for culinary excellence. 

ACF certification is a standard of professional competency and a symbol of professionalism. It carries more credibility than just a certificate from a local culinary institute.

We offer our professional culinary institute students the opportunity to acquire the ACF CC® – Certified Culinarian® certification or the ACF CFC® – Certified Fundamentals Cook® Certificates. The cost for our students to take the proctored written and practical exams for either of these programs is included in the program.

For any financing questions you may have, please email admissions@sliceutah.com so that we can better assist you. 

Whether you want to become a professional chef, food and beverage director, start a restaurant or food truck, write a cookbook, or impress your family and friends with your culinary skills, there are many opportunities to use your culinary education after graduation.

There is a shortage of qualified culinarians in Utah, and we’re approached every week by potential employers, looking for qualified and eager employees.

We provide our students with networking opportunities and introductions during their education to help provide them with options and opportunities for their careers after graduation.

To date, every professional culinary institute graduate who wanted a culinary position received an offer of employment.

We do not offer an online culinary arts education program, but we have online classes and tutorials to supplement your in-person education. 

It’s our position that culinary education is best in a face-to-face, knife-to-block environment. In-person instruction creates the best opportunity for learning the correct culinary skills and techniques. Online culinary school also prevents students from opportunities to network and test out their skills in live kitchens.

Your health and safety are extremely important to us.

We are taking every precaution to ensure a safe and sanitary kitchen and classroom environment. We regularly clean and disinfect our facility throughout the day and class sizes are currently limited to practice proper distancing. All staff is required to wear a face mask. We are doing everything we can to keep our guests and SLICE team safe, and are asking for your help with these additional precautions:

  • Upon arrival, you will sign in and have your temperature taken at the front desk. Any guests with a temperature over 100 degrees will be asked to go home.
  • You will be required to wear a face mask and gloves during the prep and cooking segments of class. You will be allowed to remove your face mask once you are seated at a dining table.
  • Please wash your hands upon arrival and after touching your phone, your face, door handles, and other surfaces outside of the kitchen.
