What People Are Saying

​Get Certified with the RBA

Current RBA members have access to Baker2Baker, RBA Connect.  A virtual place where you can collaborate and network with other professionals in the baking industry.  This wealth of knowledge is just waiting for your contributions and discussions.

An RBA certification raises professional standards and verifies the knowledge, skills, and abilities professional bakers bring to the marketplace.  Certification also increases job opportunities and income for certified bakers and decorators.  

RBA certification greatly benefits four types of retail bakers: 

  1. Students graduating from a baking or culinary programs, but have limited work experience
  2. Bakery staff with little or no technical training, but much on-the-job training
  3. Bakery staff specializing in decorating or bread baking
  4. Retail bakers with four or more years of experience.
