ACF ChefsForum Webinar Series

Throughout the year, ACF hosts webinars on varying topics to provide educational resources to all chefs looking to grow in their knowledge.

Chefs can be awarded 1 CEH by registering for an upcoming webinar, attending live or watching the recording, and completing the survey sent out after the webinar.

For those who wish to earn CEHs from past webinars, you can find almost all of the past ACF webinars in the Online Learning Center Course Catalogue and can earn 1 CEH upon course completion.
