Many years there was no food service or certification for large hotels, hospitals, schools, etc. to get a professional job. Now days there are colleges that give Associate and home Economics degrees. Many years ago teachers with home economic degrees taught the students in middle school the basic fundamentals in cooking and sewing. You do need to have a certificate to work in an upper class eatery, or hospital, etc. If you want to go to school on a scholarship, you can apply at one of the facilities listed below.
