American Culinary Federation Accreditation
The Cascade Culinary Institute’s Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts programs are accredited by the American Culinary Federation (ACF). The ACF awarded Cascade Culinary Institute exemplary accreditation thru 2021. Accreditation from the ACF is voluntary and requires that curriculum, faculty, facilities, resources, support staff, and organizational structure all substantially meet the standards set by the ACF Accrediting Commission. These standards are set by industry leaders and educators in both baking & pastry, and culinary arts.
Central Oregon Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). January 2010 the Commission adopted newly revised accreditation standards and a seven-year accreditation cycle. COCC is preparing for a review in the 2018-19 academic year under the new standards and cycle.
