A new report by the California Association of Culinary Educators (CAEDE) found that more than 40,000 instructors are currently in the process of being certified.
The new data came from the agency’s annual report on culinary education.
CAEDE found that the number of instructors has grown from 2,946 in 2010 to more than 3,700 in 2020.
The report said the number has grown even more rapidly since 2020 as more and more states have enacted legislation requiring that the industry undergo training.
In some cases, the instructors are working in locations with more stringent licensing requirements, such as those in Los Angeles and New York City.
In other cases, they are working for the largest employers in the industry.
California’s current laws require that the culinary education industry be certified by a group of state and federal agencies.
The law is called the “Celery and Related Food Preparation and Preservation Act” or C&FPPA.
The bill was signed into law in 2017 and is currently under consideration in California.
The California Association for Culinary Education says it is not able to track which states are in the C&EPA process.
But in California, it says it’s possible to find an instructor who has passed C&PPA certification and is working in California that has passed the CPE exam.
California has some of the strictest licensing requirements in the country, requiring the state to verify the teaching credentials of new graduates and to pay them wages in accordance with federal law.
