The Butchery and Charcuterie Management program is a 30-week, two-semester certificate program that provides students with a comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge of meat handling, sanitation and management skills required for the entry into the range of opportunities that exist within the retail meat, restaurant and hotel industries. Students will receive extensive hands-on training in the preparation of beef, pork, poultry, and fish in accordance to the retail meat industry's standards and develop the skills and scientific knowledge required to produce value added products such as sausages, smoked meats, and processed meat products in a safe manner. Business and customer service skills are developed through course work and the operation of the Meat Counter in the SAIT Market Place. With a focus on sustainability, students will develop an understanding and awareness of where the product came from, how to process it and how to get the most value from the product.
