Real World Experience

While classroom instruction is a fantastic tool in learning culinary and management skills, nothing beats rolling up your sleeves and getting to work. Students learn how to be an industry professional through hands-on work and real world experience under the direction of a mentor, who will direct them to connect their current performance with their professional futures.

There is simply no replacement for real world experience. Colorado ProStart understands this, which is why it has integrated this experience into its two-year program. ProStart students are able to get out of the classroom and exercise their culinary and hospitality skills in a real world environment that acts as a precursor to when they’ll enter the workforce and be expected to perform at a professional level.
