Times of Crisis become Times of Opportunity in Mexico

Paris, 4th of May 2020 – “The times of crisis are times of opportunity as 126 Pre-Commis Chefs complete Worldchefs Academy free online course,” stated President Rodrigo Ibáñez Rojas of the National Association of Professional Chefs of Mexico A.C.

The arrival of COVID-19 in Mexico is one of the biggest challenges the hospitality industry has faced: tourists who cancel, restaurants with empty tables and closed travel agencies. However, the impact has reached many more areas that are indirectly involved in the industry: education. 

Students from some universities in Mexico, convened by the National College of Professional Chefs of Mexico AC, carried out the first international online certificate and badge offered by Worldchefs Academy, created to standardize the level of knowledge and skills of cooks and chefs in a global context, which will allow them to better perform operational positions in any company in the industry around the world. 

The food and beverage industry requires more and more chefs with globalized knowledge, so getting the training now will allow them to have additional resources that complement and reaffirm their skills and knowledge towards a level of excellence. 

The result for this first occasion has been 126 new students receiving their Pre-Commis Chef certificates and badges.

We are hopeful that more students and professionals in the industry will be interested in this free program offered by Worldchefs Academy.

En Español: Los Tiempos de Crisis son Tiempos de Oportunidad Mientras 

París, 4 de mayo de 2020 – “Los tiempos de crisis son tiempos de oportunidad mientras 126 Pre-Commis Chefs completan el curso en línea gratuito de la Academia Worldchefs. “ declarado Presidente Rodrigo Ibáñez Rojas del Colegio Nacional de Chefs Profesionales de México A.C. 

La llegada del COVID-19 a México es uno de los mayores desafíos a los que la industria de la hospitalidad se ha enfrentado: turistas que cancelan, restaurantes con mesas vacías y agencias de viajes cerradas, sin embargo, el impacto ha llegado a muchas más áreas que, indirectamente, están involucradas en la industria: la educación. 

Alumnos de algunas universidades de México, convocados por el Colegio Nacional de Chefs Profesionales de México A.C., realizaron la primera certificate internacional en modo online ofrecida por la Worldchefs Academy, creada para estandarizar el nivel de conocimientos y las habilidades de cocineros y chefs en un context global, que les permitirá desempeñar de mejor forma puestos operativos en cualquier empresa del ramo en el mundo.

La Industria de Alimentos y Bebidas a nivel mundial requiere cada vez más chefs con conocimientos globalizados, por lo que obtener la capacitación ahora les permitirá contar con recursos adicionales que complementen y reafirmen sus habilidades y conocimientos hacia un nivel de excelencia. 

El resultado para esta primera ocasión ha sido que 126 nuevos estudiantes recibieran sus Pre-Commis Chef certificados e insignias.

Esperemos que haya más estudiantes y profesionales de la industria se interesen en este programa que Worldchefs Academy ofrece de manera gratuita.
