The Montana Restaurant Association Education Foundation (MTRAEF) was established in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to help train skilled workers for our restaurant industry which is experiencing a critical shortage of employees.  Nationwide, there is a crucial need for employees capable of supervisory and management positions.

The MTRA Education Foundation is your resource for the ProStart® program, a high school level curriculum that teaches food preparation and safety.  A certificate of achievement is available for those students taking the full two-year class from certified teachers at their local high school.  There are 15 high schools in Montana that currently offer the ProStart® curriculum.
