Executive chefs and head cooks who work in fine restaurants require many years of training and experience and an intense desire to cook. Some chefs and cooks may start their training in high school or post-high school vocational programs. Others may receive formal training through independent cooking schools, professional culinary institutes, or 2- or 4-year college degree programs in hospitality or culinary arts. In addition, some large hotels and restaurants operate their own training and job-placement programs for chefs and cooks. Most formal training programs require some form of apprenticeship, internship, or out-placement program that are jointly offered by the school and affiliated restaurants. Professional culinary institutes, industry associations, and trade unions also may sponsor formal apprenticeship programs in coordination with the U.S. Department of Labor. Many chefs are trained on the job, receiving real work experience and training from chef mentors in the restaurants where they work.

Alot will depend upon how detailed a chef you wish to be. To become a professional sous' chef or pastry chef, for example, will take about 11 weeks of training. However, to become a Grande Chef takes about 10 months! Not something to rush into, so make sure you want to do it before you try.

The apprenticeship program alone is three years. After this time you are a journyman cook, and still have to earn the right to be called a chef. School does increase your chances of that greatly, but typically you must also earn you're way up the ladder to become an executive chef. There are many other chef positions to go through such as chef de partie, sous chef, and chef de cuisine. With hard hard work and dedication to a job you can climb that ladder very quickly. All in all on average it could take five years or more to go from say dishwasher in a establishment to exectutive chef.

Do you have to do more training after you have become a chef?" As a chef you should never stop learning. If you want to own your own restaurant, business and marketing courses are good to take. Travel, travel, travel to experience foods from their origin.
