Short Points

Things usually turn out well

You can list stages or mentored positions under education, especially stages - low or unpaid short term positions with the goal of learning new things. List intern or externships as education.
Everything you do before you take full charge is educational.
Don't neglect continuing education and career related courses including Serve Safe.
An apprenticeship is a year or longer course with standardized certification at the end.
Vocational level trade courses are valid education. Community colleges AA degrees are highly regarded.
BA or partial college is also useful. High school is not necessary unless it was vocational.
A lack of education is not a problem. Many employers prefer hands on training.

Listing Education on your resume

Trenches trump training in most industries, but education is not only an indication that you may know something but shows that you are to some extent committed.

The most important thing to remember about educational listings is that a potential employer may check them. Not having a lot of formal training is not a negative, but being caught with false educational data on your resume is. If you didn't complete a course don't suggest that you did. You come off looking like a liar.

There are a lot of ways to get formal and informal training. You can list some jobs as training instead of work experience - stages for instance, where you work for a chef for little or no money for the purpose of learning.
