As an ACE for Practical Exams you are likely involved in all aspects of the certification process. For that reason, we wanted to ask for your assistance in sharing the good news that a new CSC Written Exam will be implemented at the National Convention in Anaheim. Everyone taking the CSC Written Exam after August 3 will take the new version of the CSC exam.
Why is there a new CSC exam and what is it like?
As many of you know, the Certification Commission performed a job analysis which resulted in a detailed list of the knowledge and skills needed by today’s successful Certified Sous Chef. The job analysis brings validity and value to ACF certifications. The exam is 100 multiple choice questions and candidates will have up to 1 ½ hours to complete.
Receive $75 Credit when taking the CSC exam at the National Convention.
CSC candidates taking the exam at the convention will be part of the pilot test. Exam scores will be delayed as the results are reviewed. To encourage participation and to accommodate the score delay, candidates will receive a $75 credit toward their CSC certification fee. Basically, those who take the CSC exam at National will be getting it free! (CSC Candidates will register online and pay for the exam but will receive a voucher for a $75 discount in their certification fee.)
How do CSC candidates prepare for the New CSC Exam?
Practice Exams have been developed to reflect the same topics and weight as the actual exam. These exams are an optional study tool and available at e-culinary. Reference material list is also listed on the CSC certification web page.
