The registration process was easy. The learning material is very useful. What I like about the assessments is that there is feedback from the Instructor in which my errors and areas for improvement are pointed out to me.

I have used International Culinary Studio to improve the skills of myself and my staff. And I have always found their courses of great value and very user friendly.

Our learning hub had Chef Andy in to teach the Year 5-6 students. It was great, Andy taught them about the importance of cleanliness and tidiness in the kitchen and a few other great skills. It was great to have a talented chef in with the students. They did learn a lot”
