CCA Manila gets ACFEF accreditation

Center for Culinary Arts (CCA, Manila) celebrates milestone on its 20th year by earning accreditation from the prestigious American Culinary Foundation-Education Foundation Accrediting Commission  (ACFEF). 

 CCA Manila underwent a strict re-assessment in May last year before the accreditation was granted for the CCA programs that include Certificate in Baking and Pastry Arts Management, Diploma in Culinary Arts and Technology Management, and Bachelor of Science in Culinary Management by the ACF, the most prestigious and biggest organization of chefs and culinary professionals in the United States.

The ACF establishes the credibility of CCA Manila as an institution 
Based in North America with 225 chapters and more than 20,000 members in the US, ACF is sanctioned by the Council on Higher Education for Accreditation (CHEA), and is the only recognized organization to accredit culinary arts, baking and pastry programs in the US.

Dr. Veritas Luna, CCA Manila managing director and Chancellor for Education, said that “The accreditation underscores the fact that our key programs, strategies and other innovations to achieve the highest academic and professionalism standards are all heading in the right direction. Through these, CCA Manila is again globally recognized for its high quality education system and excellent students.” 

CCA Manila’s earning of the ACFEF “seal of approval” is significant as it underscores the proven quality of the program in terms of the curriculum, the faculty, instructional resources, support staff and organizational structure. According to Luna, an ACF certification of chef instructors establishes the credibility of the faculty’s professional capabilities and also gives the chef added confidence about his skills – factors that are important to students as it reinforces the faculty because it highlights the chef instructors’ industry experience, educational background, training, relevance, and capability to train students.

CCA Manila continues to uphold its legacy as a leading training ground for top-caliber culinary professionals
The accreditation likewise validated CCA’s relentless pursuit for, and dedication to excellence as evidenced by the hard work and passion of the entire CCA family from the management, the faculty and the student community.

An ACFEF accreditation establishes the high quality of CCA programs, bench-marked to international standards. Obtaining an accredited diploma will help students pursuing a profession in culinary arts or baking and pastry arts towards the path of a successful career.  Upon graduation or completion of the program, students can earn an industry certification.

As CCA Manila celebrates its 20th year, it will continue to uphold its pride and legacy as the country’s foremost training ground for top-caliber culinary professionals as it positions itself to become Asia’s new hub for world-class chefs through innovative teaching and learning thrusts.
