Now that you have completed the prerequisite questions, these are the next steps:


  • You must not have a sexual felony criminal record.
  • You Must pass an interview with the apprenticeship council first before you can sign up for the program. This judge’s commitment, passion, attitude and your general character.
  • Must join the ACF as a Student Culinarian
  • Must enroll at Mesa Community College under the Apprenticeship course. Date to be determined
  • Must look for a sponsoring house to accept you as an apprentice.

  • If an apprentice is not showing up for related instruction at Mesa College, then the apprentice can be dismissed from the program after an investigation is held. Again all expenses paid by the CDCEF for that apprentice will need to be refunded back to the foundation by the apprentice.
