The FAST and easiest way to become a Restaurant Cook


With apprenticeship, you learn by doing! Working as a restaurant cook is a highly skilled and practical career-path!

You can study a vocational qualification for the Restaurant Cook by apprenticeship agreement (oppisopimus) if you already have some experience and a working place in a restaurant and your employer is willing to sign an apprenticeship or training contract with you and Perho Culinary, Tourism and Business College. So, you can study and earn money at the same time.
