The Community College System of NH (CCSNH) and the NH Lodging & Restaurant Association (NHLRA) have teamed up to help restaurants and other eating establishments certify that staff are trained in COVID-related safety protocols. The “NH Promise” program provides free online training for all employees; just register and complete; it only takes a couple of hours. Workers who complete the course will be awarded a certificate from CCSNH.

Establishments with at least 25 percent of front-line staff and all supervisors earning certification will be awarded an “NH Promise” decal to display publicly. It’s an additional layer of protection and reflects the industry’s commitment to both customer and staff safety.

The NH Promise program is available statewide to all employees in NH’s restaurant, food services, and lodging industry, free of charge. Job-seekers may also complete the training at no cost, and will have a credential to use when applying for jobs in the hospitality sector. The NH Promise provides training based on the latest CDC and industry guidelines.
