El Centro College's Food and Hospitality Services Institute provides training through classroom instruction, hands-on participation and work-study classes for three different food service careers: Culinary Arts, Bakery/Pastry Arts, and Food and Hospitality Service. The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex has an expanding population, two busy convention centers and rapid growth of hotels and restaurants creating strong demand for qualified personnel to staff these facilities.
The food service curriculum was developed and is continuously monitored by an Industry Advisory Committee composed of members who represent a broad spectrum of the food and hospitality service industry.
All A.A.S. degrees are accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the American Culinary Federation.
