Any student successfully completing the program and the mentoring requirements of the NRA and scoring “Pass” or better on the Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System (MS-CPAS) exam is eligible to take the National ProStart Certificate of Achievement exam. This is a national certification program recognized throughout the food service industry.
