NAFTrack Certified Hiring is the groundbreaking promise by some of America’s top companies to support college students and eventual job applicants who have completed the NAF course of study and graduated from high school, enrolled in college, and earned the NAFTrack Certification. These benefits may include, but are not limited to, pre-interview and resume support, and access to paid college internships. NAFTrack Certification is gained through careful assessment of student performance displayed in end-of-course exams, projects, and internships.
