Ready to validate that you have the skills and knowledge to pass the certification exams? We have developed three challenges in Learn Chef Rally to help you test yourself before signing up for an exam.

Chef Certification

The badge-based Chef certification program provides the opportunity to demonstrate your capabilities and communicate your credentials wherever and whenever you choose. The combined knowledge and performance assessment approach provides the opportunity to demonstrate Chef proficiency in real world scenarios.

Want to fully demonstrate your Chef capabilities? Pass three exams and become a Certified Chef Developer. Once achieved you will receive an additional badge plus some very cool swag to celebrate your success.

Chef badges provide the following benefits:
  • Combine your badges to achieve Chef certification levels
  • Display your qualifications on social and professional networking sites
  • Provide employers with easy, valid verification of your credentials
