Worldchefs Academy is excited to announce the launch of the Italian Pre-Commis Chef Course! Adding to the line-up of free courses available for our global community, the Italian Pre-Commis Chef Course joins the English, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic Library!

“On behalf of the Worldchefs Board of Directors, I would like to congratulate all the Italian Chef Volunteers who helped bring this educational opportunity to aspiring Chefs in Italian-speaking communities around the world. We are proud to be now offering the Pre-Commis Chef Course in 5 languages and will be adding German and Mandarin later this year” stated Worldchefs President Thomas Gugler.

With curriculum covering the basics of culinary professionalism, food service operations, culinary theory, food hygiene and sanitation, basic cooking and culinary nutrition, the Pre-Commis Chef Course can be followed as a complete curriculum and individual lessons can be used to compliment other existing courses or provide theoretical components to culinary apprenticeship.

Participants can learn through the online platform or via the mobile app also offering an offline study mode. By connecting to the Internet when available they can download the course via the mobile app and study any time, with or without Internet. Then they simply go back online when ready to complete the final assessment. The Pre-Commis Chef Course also links to Worldchefs Certification opportunities and offers to be the first step on the culinary career pathway.
