New TCC certificate in restaurant management combines love of food and business

Whether you want to run your own restaurant or manage a popular chain, Tidewater Community College’s new certificate can prepare you for a thriving career.

The Career Studies Certificate in Restaurant Management will be introduced this spring. The 28-credit program combines management and food service instruction in addition to hands-on training in an area restaurant.

Students will study restaurant management; sanitation and safety; recipe and menu management; and hospitality supervision – a range that includes a business background necessary to succeed in this dynamic field.

Students interested in continuing to develop their skills will be able to apply all their credits to TCC’s Associate of Applied Science in Hospitality Management.

Many of the classes that fall under the new certificate are only eight weeks in length. Face-to-face and online classes are available.
