    All,

    I'm finding it difficult to decide which part time culinary school to attend due to their differing schedules. I'd be attending part time nights. 6-10pm as I work full time.

    One Campus works like this, twice per week, 1 hour theory 3 hours in kitchen.

    Second Campus work like this, twice per week, 4 hours of solid theory one night, and 4 hours kitchen the second night per week.

    Both schools are saying they can give me the same 300 hours, but I don't know how from that above scenario.

    6 hrs per week in kitchen vs 4 hours per week.

    What do you think is a better way to learn ? The 1 and 3 or the 4 and 4 ??? One night per week in the kitchen vs two nights in the kitchen ?

    Thanks for reading.

    It sounds like the first campus is giving you more kitchen time. Culinary schools can have some crazy, non-traditional schedules. How long does each class run?

    In school 1: 2 hrs theory per week and 6 hours of kitchen
    In School 2: 4 hrs theory and 4 hrs of coursework does not add up to the same as #1 over the course of the week.

    Did school 2 tell you it adds up to 300 hrs over time before or after you asked the question about it?

    yes school 2 told me it would add up to the same.

    thanks for the advice.
