What is FS Prep?

The FS Prep Instructional Resource is a two-year comprehensive culinary and foodservice instructional resource including daily lesson plans, lab and lecture guides, supplementary materials, tests and quizzes; all in modular and electronic format.

The course content and minimum competency requirements complement and help fulfill Texas Education Agency (TEA) Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and Workforce Education Course Materials (WECM) requirements. This will encourage and provide the student with tools for continuing post-secondary foodservice education.
