With deference to Worldchefs directive that each country institute certification programs to facilitate the validation of titles for the Worldchefs Certification Program that has been conducted successfully for the past 4 years, the Indian Federation of Culinary Associations (IFCA) in consultation with a leading Certificate Consultant, Chef Michael Baskette has developed a professional certification program for student chefs, sous chefs, training chefs, pastry chefs, executive chefs and master chefs to validate the expertise of chefs at various career levels within the professional food service industry. Testrac, a reputed Testing agency in USA, will facilitate the testing. This agency has already been engaged by American Culinary Federation and has high recommendations. The IFCA Professional Certification program also aims to be a guideline for continuous professional development. Whether you are a seasoned chef or a student chef beginning his or her career, IFCA Certification is a vehicle for building and strengthening a professional food service career throughout the chef’s professional life.
