"I've had a lot of experience in the kitchen, but very little in management. I found myself with a team of employees to supervise, orders to make, and menus to develop. The training came just in time. The program was a big help to me and made it a lot easier for me to fit into my new position."

— Éric Martel, Food Services Supervisor, Mess de la Citadelle in Québec
