Online Learning

When it comes to furthering your education or nurturing your Knowledge & Skills set, but are worried about the time and place, then online education is your solution.  Online Education Programs are an option that offer convenience of time to learn from home. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), as they call it are online learning modules available to the public regardless of their geographic location or education level. It is a model for learning online for anyone who wants to take a course at their own pace and schedule.  A typical MOOC has more or less defined topics of study, facilitators and assessments. Students watch short video lectures online, read through online content and complete the assignments based on which certifications are provided.

Here, at the International Centre for Culinary Arts – ICCA Dubai, we have taken a joint initiative with Fatafeat to provide an online education platform that is, Fatafeat ICCA Academy Online for Culinary enthusiasts, to deliver a new way of learning food.

We all are familiar with Discovery Communications in the television world. It is the world’s #1 pay-tv programmer reaching nearly 3 billion cumulative subscribers in more than 220 countries and territories.

The Fatafeat ICCA Online Academy program is based on the innovative idea of bringing together Television and Online media to effectively deliver Certified Culinary Education accredited by City & Guilds, London. The accreditation by City & Guilds is given due to the program’s high level of quality instructions, online materials and support for learners, all of which will allow you to achieve the Fundamentals of Culinary and Home Kitchen Skills. Upon the successful completion of the specified “Online Assessments” from  Fatafeat ICCA Academy Online, an accredited program certificate from City & Guilds London is awarded to the candidate.
