ICA Ice Cream Training Courses

Improving your knowledge and skills can greatly contribute to making top quality ice creams and the ICA offers training courses on such subjects as ingredient functionality and product formulation. Our training courses are completely independent of any ingredient and equipment suppliers and therefore offer totally impartial help. As a not-for-profit organisation our course fees are kept to the bare minimum needed to cover our costs with most taking place at our offices here in Derby.

The following comments were made by some of the attendees at our last Ice Cream Training course:

"The course gave a great insight into the intro of ice cream recipes."

"Jean addressed everything I needed to know. Great knowledge."

"Very enjoyable and Jean was very knowledgable."

For details of the courses and dates call Louise on 01332 203333 or email louise@ice-cream.org.

Alternatively, there are a number of our members and organisations offering training opportunities including:
