Anyone here ACF certified and at what level? I am interested in getting my foot in the door but lack the educational credits (Nutrition, Food Safety and Sanitation, Supervisory Management) required to start. These courses are available online and at various academic institutions (community colleges, culinary schools etc.) but I am hesitant about shelling out a lot of money for this (anyone know what the price ranges are?). Any advice for finding a chapter or somewhere where they can guide you in the right direction?
I am an experienced sous chef but am not classically trained with no formal education. I am looking to legitimize my career in some sense but going to culinary school at this point would be completely redundant and a big waste of time and money so ACF certification seems like a better alternative. I am hesitant in some respects but still interested in learning more about it.
