What are you studying @ CDU?

Commercial Cookery Certificate III

Why did you want to study @ CDU?

It was part of my apprenticeship. It was the best choice because facilities were closest to Yulara.

Best aspects of studying your course @ CDU:

It’s a great blend of learning because you can mix practise and theory.

Words of wisdom for prospective students:

Do what you like. When I left school I was a trades assistant but always wanted to be a cook.

What are your career aspirations?

Eventually open my own restaurant.


The ABC's Leon Compton will chair the CDSS
