Supported by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) and the foodservice industry, ProStart is a two-year career and technical education program in high schools focused on teaching culinary arts and restaurant management fundamentals through a combination of classroom and industry instruction. Once students pass two national exams, demonstrate a mastery of foundational skills, and work 400 mentored hours, they earn the ProStart Certificate of Achievement, which makes them eligible to receive scholarships and course credits at select colleges and universities.
