Advanced Italian Culinary Arts Program

The Advanced Culinary Arts Program (AICAP) is a 60.5 credit hour program designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to begin or advance in their culinary career with a strong emphasis on Italian cuisine. Completion of the program takes approximately 60 weeks.

Students enrolled in this program will complete five (12 week) modules of study. The first three of these modules will take place exclusively at the Connecticut Culinary Institute. The fourth module will begin at CCI but will end at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners (ICIF), headquartered in the Castle of Costigliole d'Asti, a small town located in the beautiful hills of Monferrato, Italy.

This portion of Italian study will last for approximately three weeks (CCI has a consortium /partnership agreement with ICIF). Students in the AICAP program will experience the prestige and traditions of the rich cultural heritage Italy enjoys with the immense diversity of regional cuisine and flavor.

The AICAP Program culminates with a 300 hour externship (fifth module). Students have the option of completing this externship in Italy, arranged by ICIF and approved and monitored by CCI. Alternatively, they may choose to complete their externship in one of ICIF approved Italian restaurants (all of which are members of the prestigious Gruppo Ristorante Italiano here in the United States).

Students are prepared for entry into the culinary field as sauté' chefs, catering chefs, sauciers, sous-chefs, chef de garde manger, and other culinary positions in Italian restaurants. Upon successful completion of the program and all of its requirements, a student earns the Institute's diploma of graduation.

Program offered is a Certificate.
