NAC Director of Education and Malco Theatre’s Senior Vice President Larry Etter, CCM will be the instructor for a once in a lifetime in-depth Concession & Hospitality educational experience.
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 1,500 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.
“In 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.”
– Gina DiSanto, CCM, King Theatres
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.
The basis of the course is also part of the curriculum at the School of Human Sciences, Department of Nutrition and Food Science at Auburn University in Alabama.
