Build teamwork in the front and back of the house

One of the best (and worst) things about hospitality work is the adrenaline. You might have a lunch rush, a check-in crunch or two last-minute eight-tops on top of a big banquet. The difference between energizing stress and soul-crushing stress? A great manager.

Train to be that cool-headed, long-sighted planner. Learn menu design, cost control and continuous improvement techniques. Polish your skills in the front and back of the house. Learn how to manage people and inventory. Then, let the rush begin.

What can you do with a Hospitality Manager Certificate?

This certificate prepares you to start work or continue your studies in culinary arts, food science or related fields.

When you earn this certificate, you meet the American Culinary Federation (A.C.F.) initial certification and re-certification requirements for the Sanitation, Nutrition and Supervision courses for the A.C.F. Chefs Certification program. You'll also be qualified to apply for the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (N.R.A.E.F.) ManageFirst Diploma, which is a nationally recognized industry credential.
