Many entry-level fast-food and short-order cooks don't require anything higher than a high school degree, but if you want a career as a chef you will probably need more education than that. Those hiring chefs tend to look for at least some education after high school; this can be a certification program of a few months, a two-year or a four-year degree in the culinary arts--depending on the restaurant. Many chefs start their careers by getting a degree from a private cooking school. It's also not unusual for larger restaurants and hotels to have their own training programs for new hires, and some may also help with job placement as well.

Culinary training is extremely hands-on, and you probably won't find an entire Culinary Arts degree online. However, you can learn some aspects online, including food safety and nutrition basics. Here are a few classes on this site that you might be interested in:
