Oxnard College offers culinary training right in the heart of Ventura County! Why go to a Los Angeles for-profit cooking school, or restaurant management school, at almost 10 times the cost, and come out without having experienced working in real restaurants? Study at Oxnard College, and graduate with a secure knowledge that you can handle yourself professionally.
At our culinary school, you’ll take hands-on culinary lab classes in our fully-equipped kitchen and refined restaurant. We have several associate degree and certificate options. An added benefit, unlike for-profit culinary schools in Los Angeles or Pasadena, is that many of your credits will be transferable to some four-year universities.
The Restaurant Management Program prepares students to obtain employment in the restaurant management field as food service unit managers, multi-unit managers, corporate executives, or corporate trainers.

In these positions employees are required to perform marketing, accounting, procurement, front desk operations, housekeeping management, hospitality law, facilities management, human resources and food and restaurant management, facilities design and planning, hospitality law, and events management.
