Demands of the program

It is important to recognize that the Culinary Arts field is an exciting, fast-paced and typically involve a high degree of mental and physical demands. Applicants to either of Lane’s programs can expect that the curriculum will match the demanding nature of these service professions.

At the time of entry into the program, students are expected to be able to communicate well verbally and in writing, calculate basic math and simple algebra problems, and with practice, learn to extend recipes quickly at the time of planning and food preparation. Lab sessions last five hours, and students are typically standing for extended periods of time. Some food and equipment are heavy or involve safety risks (such as knives) and require lifting or agile movement. All students will be expected to work gracefully and communicate clearly under intense time pressures for specific events.

In order to successfully complete these programs, students must meet the established academic requirements that are essential to the program of instruction, with or without reasonable accommodations.
