XI. Certificate Programs
Food Processing Technology Program(OCAS program Code A2-18)
College d'Alfred, in collaboration with McGill University, has designed a unique program that will enable students to benefit from the many employment opportunities in the Food Processing Industry.
This 34 week intensive program provides students with the skills and techniques that are in demand among employers. It combines practical understanding of food processing with the technical and scientific information that is required to successfully operate modern food processing plants. In addition to the technical skills and knowledge required to perform the duties, valuable insights into communication, organizational and interpersonal behaviour will contribute to the student's success. Applicants must have obtained an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (or equivalent) to be accepted in the program. Students are encouraged to complete senior level courses (grade 11 and/or 12) in mathematics, biology and chemistry.
