PITTSBURGH TECHNICAL INSTITUTE
Pittsburgh Technical Institute (PTI) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially announce the opening of the American Academy of Culinary Arts (AACA) "where great chefs prep." More than 200 chefs, general managers, food-service directors, restaurateurs, and hoteliers attended and tasted hors d'oeuvres prepared by AACA's new students. The first class has 35 chefs in training who are pursuing either a 15-month certificate or a 21-month associate in science degree. Students will study under the direction of internationally acclaimed chef Norman Peter Hart, a member of the American Culinary Federation and the exclusive Honorable Order of the Golden Toque.

PSCUs open doors to many of the 9.1 million unemployed and 90 million undereducated Americans by providing a skills-based education. To remain competitive over the next decade, we must identify between 8 and 23 million new workers with postsecondary skills. PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
