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.
