We held our first orientation session yesterday (Monday) and we still have room for more applicants. 
An additional informational session has just been scheduled for Thursday 8/17 at 10:00 a.m. Ohia Building Room 118. The session will last a little more than an hour and a half. 

This is a excellent opportunity to move people from unemployment to gainful employment. 
KCC is restarting three cohorts on August 21October 30January 29 of our Go Cook! Hawaii Fast Track Food Service Job Training program.  If there’s fund remaining at the end of the third cohort, we will offer one more.
It is a FREE full time (10 weeks, 5 days a week, 8 hours per day) on-the-job training program.  KCC will loan the trainees the cook’s jacket, provide hair covering, and all the kitchen equipment needed for the training.  There will be a job fair at the end of each training cycle.  Anyone unemployed, underemployed, 16 years and older are eligible.  Past experience indicated that we had 100% job offers for all the trainees who successfully completed the program.
