NRA Celebrates Milestone: One Million Classes

The National Restaurant Association hit a milestone in its effort to be the restaurant industry’s leader in training and certification solutions. On July 8, it held its one millionth training class and exam administration—a ServSafe Manager course in Nashville, Ind.

The nation’s nearly one million restaurants and 13 million employees have benefited from the association’s ServSafe Food Safety, ServSafe Alcohol, ProStart curriculum, ManageFirst and other programs for the last 25 years.

The association’s range of programs are “the gold-standard for food safety, responsible alcohol service and hospitality management,” said Dawn Sweeney, NRA president and CEO. “Our ServSafe Food Safety program is the nation’s most widely accepted food safety training and certification program, with 4.6 million ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certifications awarded to date. As we celebrate this milestone of one million training classes, we look forward to a million more.”
