The CFEST Program at Oklahoma City Community College is an entry level training program that provides individuals with a pathway to a successful career in the commercial food equipment service and repair industry.

CFEST is an employer-based (driven) training program that focuses on the technical requirements of the industry. Developed in conjunction with area employers and the national Commercial Food Equipment Service Association (CFESA), the Program offers a blended learning environment, including instructor-led training, online training, computerized and hands-on simulation, and hands-on troubleshooting.

Through CFEST, students receive technical training, educational and employment coaching, workplace skills training, and job connection assistance. This approach to the learning process is intended to provide individual support while empowering students to:

  • Learn the basic technical skills of the industry
  • Learn skills essential to success in the workplace
  • Gain employment in the industry
  • Boost your current skills for advancement on the job
  • Build a foundation for long term success
  • Earn a competitive wage

The program is designed as an open entry, open exit format, meaning an eligible participant can start classes at the beginning of each training module. After a student has been admitted into the program, successfully completing all intake components, they may begin training on the next available Monday.
