Do not confuse a chef with a professional chef or a registered “TechnicalChef.
A TechnicalChef is different.

TechnicalChefs have industry and community recognition, creditability, status, reputation, and a professional title as a fully qualified chef based on evidence.
TechnicalChef is a holistic assessment of a person as a technically skilled and commercial cookery practitioner who has achieved a minimum standard in all five individual categories below and has been inducted as an A.I.T.C member. Assessment of : skills, attitude, knowledge, experience and obligations need also to be read by applicants.
Assessed by the length of time in foundation skills training and development in a commercial kitchen (A minimum of three years or 6000 hours).
Assessed by the independent opinion of three industry referees, which may be boosted by evidence of participation in career or self-development.
