KCKCC TEC to offer new classes in cooking, model construction

The Kansas City Kansas Community College Technical Education Center is now offering Professional Cooking classes at night in the “Train at night for a new career tomorrow” series.

"In order to better meet the needs of the communities we serve, we felt it was of high importance to offer a Professional Cooking Night Program,” said Chef Cheryl Runnebaum, Professional Cooking instructor. “This will enable people who have other obligations during the day, the opportunity to work towards their Professional Cooking Certificate at night."

These classes will cover everything from ServSafe, equipment and the industry, kitchen essentials, food production and more.

Classes will begin with the 2013 fall semester and KCKCC Technical Education Center is currently accepting enrollment.

Additionally KCKCC TEC is now offering a new Continuing Education class in AutoCad/3D Model Construction and Hazard Communication.

This class will be offered Tuesday nights beginning August 27 from 6 – 9 p.m. at 6565 State Avenue, Kansas City, Kan.

AutoCad/3D Model Construction and Hazard Communication is a course in which students will learn an understanding of Materials Safety Data Sheets and practice sensible safe work habits.

“AutoCAD 3D is a great course for those students who are looking to become a CAD operator.  CAD operators are the backbone of any engineering firm,” said Rich Piper, Director of Technical Programs. “They perform an immense amount of the graphic work to assist engineers in the many different projects associated with multiple industries.”

Students will construct a basic design model kit, draw a model kit in 2D and 3D and plot.
