The Culinary Academy of Las Vegas - Students welcoming Thomas E Perez, Secretary of Labor

Welcome to the Culinary Academy of Las Vegas

Formerly the Culinary Training Academy

We provide various training for entry-level and incumbent workers in the Las Vegas hospitality industry. As a labor-management trust, the Academy has invaluable partnerships with the Culinary Union 226, Bartenders Union 165, and 26 major properties on the Las Vegas Strip. Our goal is to provide high-quality training that will enable people to have great careers in the hospitality industry, with good wages, opportunities for career advancement, and health and retirement benefits.

The Academy is an internationally recognized model for workplace education and vocational training. Students receive real-world training through our restaurant, the Westside Bistro, and our catering division, Culinary Arts Catering, which provides banquets at our events center. In addition, the Academy is a caterer and concessionaire for The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.

The Culinary Academy of Las Vegas plays an important role in the community, working to overcome poverty and unemployment. Since our beginnings in 1993, we have trained more than 40,000 people for our participating employers in the hospitality industry. All classes are licensed by the Nevada Commission on Post-Secondary Education.
