Bidwell Training Center (BTC) and Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) have entered into an articulation agreement that will allow BTC’s culinary art students to transfer credits to CCAC if they wish to pursue a culinary arts degree.

With regular wait lists to enroll, BTC’s culinary arts diploma program is among the career training school’s most popular majors. Our students have gone on to work at some of Pittsburgh’s most prestigious restaurants, started their own restaurants, and established their own catering companies. At no cost to qualified students the culinary arts program—like all other BTC programs—provides an excellent first step for student’s to change their lives. This new articulation agreement will help provide new opportunities for our students who would like to continue their studies and get an Associate in Applied Science from CCAC in culinary arts.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Bidwell’s culinary arts graduates who would like to receive their Associates Degree in culinary arts,” said Cynthia Tuite, BTC’s culinary arts program director. “This agreement will give them the opportunity to have a flexible schedule with CCAC by receiving credits for courses completed at Bidwell Training Center.”
