Confectionery Industry Workers

Confectionery industry workers usually must have a high school diploma. After they are hired, employees learn production skills via on-the-job training that may last from a few days to a month. High school courses in chemistry, biology, and shop are useful as background for some jobs, but skills are gained only through experience. Family and consumer science classes may offer the opportunity to learn about cooking, baking, and food products. For some advanced positions, such as candy maker, workers may need technical expertise in food chemistry or other fields, as well as a solid knowledge of the industry.
