Frequently Asked Questions

About Course Concept

What is the difference between on-site and online course?
On-site MasterClasses are intense 3 to 5 day courses organised in Bucharest, Romania in groups of 14 to 16 students. 
Courses are hands-on giving you the opportunity to experience working with Chef Richard Hawke. Can be a wonderful opportunity to gain more insight into the Gluten Free world. 
Recommended for students with some baking or pastry experience.
Online MasterClasses can be taken from anywhere, anytime and by anybody. 
You can study according to your schedule, from the comfort of your home, without having to interrupt your work or travel abroad. All you need is a laptop or PC, good internet connection and the desire to learn. It's a 6 weeks guided learning experience with 12 months access to Video Lessons and online materials. 
During 6 weeks of guided learning, we recommend to invest at least 10 to 15 hours/week, to go through video lessons several times and follow through all your practical assignments, to get the most out of your course. After all, practice makes perfect!
Online MasterClasses can be taken by both home bakers and professionals. They are designed to start with basic recipes, carefully guiding you through with step by step videos towards more complex cakes.
Video lessons can be revisited as many times as you desire, during the 12 months access period.
Is this a theoretical or practical course?
From our experience as educators, we believe the best way to learn is combining theory with practice. This is the principle we have structured our course around.
  Theory is structured in Module 1 - Ingredient Understanding, where we explain specific ingredients used in pastry and their role in our products;
  Starting with Module 2 we move on to Practical Learning:
 
Demonstrative Video Lessons [Chef demonstrates step by step each recipe];
 
Practical Student Assignments [Students reproduce in their kitchen the recipes and submit the results;
 Chef's Evaluation & Feedback on submitted assignments.
What does Guided Practical Learning Experience mean?
During the first 6 weeks of the course, your learning experience will be guided by Chef Richard Hawke and ICEP Team. 
You will receive access to Modules gradually you will be able to follow anytime in the week assigned.
Your learning experience will consist of: 
 Printable PDF Materials [Resource Center]
 Pre-recorded Full HD Video Lessons with Chef
 Practical Assignments
 Chef's Evaluation and Feedback on submitted assignments;
 Support;
 Access to our International Pastry Community.

What are the practical assignments and why do I need to submit them?
Our course is designed as a Practical Online Learning Program. We believe the best results you can obtain by combining theoretical learning with practice. 
During the 6 weeks Guided Learning, you will have 3 practical assignments to submit, consisting of making 3 cakes in your kitchen and submitting the results of your practice together with a description of the process and challenges encountered. 
Your Assignment will be reviewed by Chef and you will receive Chef's Feedback.

You will also have the option to extend your GLE with another 6 weeks allowing you more time to practice and submit assignments.
Will I receive my Training Certificate if I fail to submit my assignments?
