Savannah Technical College recently received re-accreditation from The American Culinary Federation Foundation Accrediting Commission.
The culinary arts diploma and the associate of applied science degree in culinary arts have been renewed for another five years.
The accrediting commission, comprised of a team of peer evaluators from educational institutions, determines if a program meets the standards established by the American Culinary Federation.
 Curriculum, faculty, staff, facilities and organizational structure are evaluated during the visit by the accrediting commission team.
“The purpose of accreditation is to say to the food service industry that a student graduating from the program is well-trained and ready to enter the workforce,” chef Marvis Hinson, culinary arts instructor and department head, said.
In 1993, Savannah Technical College was the first post-secondary school to earn ACF accreditation in Georgia. Today, it is one of five ACF accredited post-secondary programs in the state.
The culinary arts program at Savannah Technical College emphasizes technical and theoretical knowledge combined with the practical application of basic food preparation and service techniques, sanitation, equipment use, and safety. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible for ACF certification at the level of certified culinarian.
