Concession Manager Certification Program
Education is at the core of NAC's mission, and no program more effectively
meets that mission than the Concession Manager Certification Program.
For 20 years this program has offered targeted, concessions-specific training
that provides the tools and skills needed to manage a concessions program
efficiently and profitably.
Over 1,000 graduates from all types of venues and facilities have been
certified through this program, which presents instruction that can be
traced directly to the profit margin. The course is open to both concession
operators and suppliers. Suppliers who have taken the course find it helpful
in determining their customers' concerns and issues.
the theatre industry our primary purpose is to entertain the customer
with movies and concessions. The CCM program provides you with the
tools and information to "entertain" profitably and manage
your personnel effectively."
The 4-day course includes 25 hours of instruction in a participative
classroom environment. Each class is different, with students not only
learning from the instructor, but from the experience and knowledge of
the other students in the class. At the end of the course an exam is given.
Those passing the exam may use the designation CCM (Certified Concession
Manager) or, for suppliers, ACE (Allied Concession Executive).
The program outline includes sections on Management, Profit Planning,
Cost Control Systems, Menu Planning, Branding, and more. Click

The basis of the course is also part of the curriculum at the
School of Human Sciences, Department of Nutrition and Food Science at
