AHA PHILIPPINES AND THE AMERICAN CULINARY FEDERATION (ACF)
The American Culinary Federation (ACF), thru the ACF Education Foundation (ACFEF), granted its first-ever 5-year accreditation to AHA Philippines for its Diploma in Culinary Arts/Culinary Entrepreneurship and Associate in International Culinary Arts programs in 2011. A team of highly trained American culinary educators and chefs travelled to the Philippines to evaluate and assess the programs of AHA Philippines, which proved to be at par with ACF-accredited culinary schools in the U.S and the world.
AHA Philippines continues to sustain its U.S. standard of culinary training with its second 5-year accreditation in 2016. ACF Awarded last July 2016 a full accreditation of the program from 2016-2021.
Why is ACF accreditation important? An international accreditation from this reputable international institution translates to:
1. You have graduated from a school that passes the strictest standards set by the premier association
of chefs in the U.S. in terms of curriculum, program content, facilities and faculty
2. You have graduated from a school that is at par with other ACF-accredited schools in the U.S. and
3. You have the network of chefs from the U.S. and all over the world for possible training,
employment and collaborative research in the field; and
4. Your potential international employer will recognize the quality of culinary training you went
through as a student.
