I remember being very first Indian nationality student in CCEB in 2015. Everything was new for me here. The place I am from is not as advanced as Cairns. It was life changing for me. This college has helped me a lot of adjust in the environment. These courses really helped me out to learn about front of the house and communicatin skills, team work when negotiations and much more. My tutors were Sandy and Charmane at that time, front desk was Helen and Yes, our awesome director Ueli. Later, after completing study, I moved onto study hospitality to learn more about industry and returned to CCEB again for course of Commercial Cookery. Chris and Renee are amazing teachers and class has never been boring with them. I am very proud to say that with the knowledge and skills I learnt from CCEB, today me and my friends together are running restaurant in Spicy Bite in Earlville. All the staff we have there has completed their study from CCEB this month. Towards new beginnings. This was my story.”
