    Currently, NAF is conducting a Feasibility Study on a Program of Study for NAFTrack Certification.  Blanche Ely High School Hospitality and Tourism Academy is invited to participate in the feasibility study to test the NAFTrack technical solution and the course approval process for a group of academies.  This feasibility study is a small scale pilot project designed to test logistics and gather information prior to a larger roll-out to the NAF Network.
    Benefits to the academy - To use courses for NAFTrack Certification that are not NAF courses which increase opportunities for student to be NAFTrack Certified.
