I know there is no clear cut road to becoming anything in this business, but I go to the cia, and I have been in the school for 5 months now and my roommate who has been at the school for 6 months and just got in the production kitchen said that after you pass fundamentals, the teaching slows down, and I want to be a private chef later on in my career that I'm sure of, so I guess my question is should I withdrawal from the cia and go to a school like le corn., or jws, I want to learn as much as I can learn about food, because I grew up on frozen box food, so there is a lot of things about food that I don't know about or had a chance to taste yet, plz help

Stay in CIA. Your buddy may think the learning stopped because he could possibly already know how to do what theyre doing in class, but maybe you wont. If you already have restaurant experience then you are already gonna know a third of the stuff theyre gonna teach you how to do. Stick it out. Soak up all you can. Ive never personally been to culinary school but a lot of coworkers are cia grads and they teach me something new everyday. If i could afford it i would be there with you.
