Escoffier Online is a work training program designed to train students for an industry position.


Hi, my name’s Josh Meyer. I’m the Director of Admissions with Escoffier Online International Culinary Academy. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is ‘is your program accredited?’ And, right now, our program is not accredited. However, we do have many prestigious affiliations within the culinary industry, including the Chicago chapter of the American Culinary Federation, the Escoffier Foundation and Museum in East France, as well as the American Personal and Private Chef Association. There are some others, and you can check them all out at our website at

Now, one thing to note with our programs being certificate programs: we do not take transfer credits from other programs, and our program is not a credit-based program. So, it is a work training program designed to train you for an industry position as an entry-level line cook or prep cook.
