BakePro Certification

Become a Certified BakePro!

The BakePro Certification is a training program that leverages AIB International’s century of expertise to address your specific needs and facility. As a trusted partner to the baking industry for 100 years, training by AIB International gives you an advantage over your peers.

Enhanced Skills Development

The BakePro Certification builds confidence through on-site training on how to improve products through better processes and product evaluation. Alongside our experts, bakers learn to troubleshoot real-time problems in their facility, while quickly applying new skills and knowledge.

Customized to Your Products

Each participant is enrolled in two basic online baking courses: Baker’s Math and Science and Function of Ingredients (test out options are available).

Participants then choose between one and three product types on which to focus. Bakery product type categories to choose from include:

  • Artisan Bread
  • Buns and Rolls
  • Cake Doughnuts
  • Cheesecake
  • Cookies
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Crackers
  • Croissants
  • Flour Tortillas
  • Pastries
  • Pies
  • Snack/Sponge Cakes
  • Yeast-Raised Doughnuts

Training Schedule

The training for each product type consists of five days at the client’s location. During those five days, one of our experts will work alongside participants to cover process control, function of ingredients, product scoring and troubleshooting for each specific product type. New ingredients and gluten-free products may also be covered.

This program can be completed by up to three participants at a single site and will focus on one product category per week. Multiple product categories for BakePro Certification will be completed consecutively and conducted by the same expert. The number of products covered will convert to a “level” designation for participants. For example, those completing one product type will become a “Certified BakePro Level 1,” while those completing three types will become a “Certified BakePro Level 3.”

One-on-one Training

Each participant will also receive one-on-one mentoring from an AIB International Baking Professional for six months following the on-site portion of the program, ensuring skill retention and application. BakePro certificates will be provided after all aspects of the program – including mentoring – are complete, deeming the individual a “Certified BakePro.”

Half of the program fees are due in advance, with the second half invoiced following the on-site portion. If cancellation is necessary, you will receive a 100% refund or transfer credit—less $850 per person—if you cancel at least 30 days prior to the first day of on-site consulting. Penalties may apply for cancellations less than 30 days in advance; contact AIB for more information.
