Chad Johnson from Huu-ay-aht First Nations found his passion of cooking at the age of 18. He enjoyed cooking for himself and started getting employment in the field. He has worked in restaurants in Port Alberni and Ucluelet.
With the opportunities of learning techniques and recipes, Chad wanted to move forward with professional training. To date he has completed Professional Cook Level 1 and 2 and now recently completed his required apprenticeship hours for Level 2. He is patiently waiting for Level 3 training to start.
Chad’s ultimate goal is to open his own restaurant at some point. He recognizes that seeking an apprenticeship sponsor can be challenging and he would be willing to support individuals in completing this big step to become a Red Seal Chef.
Chad shares that getting up and exploring course information and funding options is what got him going and it was all worth the time and energy.
NETP would like to congratulate Chad in his accomplishments and all the success that he shown and demonstrated. Way to go Chad!
