SIT Hospitality Training Package entry requirements for this qualification

Direct entry is allowed for all SIT Hospitality qualifications.

However, industry highly recommends that students complete the Certificate III in Commercial Cookery qualification and gain vocational experience in industry before progressing to a Certificate IV qualification, as Certificate IV Kitchen Management qualifications provide for the acquisition of more senior or supervisory skills.
