PrintThe ManageFirst Program, created by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) and managed nationally by National Restaurant Association Solutions, is a management development program that equips students with the key competencies they need to begin or advance their management careers in our demanding industry.

Program participants receive industry-respected training that prepares them to confidently lead our ever-growing industry. This management program teaches practical competencies needed to face real-world challenges in the industry.

The National Restaurant Association has created exams that measure knowledge on general procedures, core principles, technical skills and the how's and why's of cooking and baking.

The certificate exams attest that students have met the learning objectives and have full knowledge of the principles and practices of the culinary arts. Because the exams evaluate the student's grasp of generally accepted principles of cooking and baking, they can be used as a capstone for any culinary program.
