The ServSafe Manager Certification verifies that a manager or person-in-charge of an establishment has enough food safety knowledge to protect the public from food-borne illness. 

During the course, topics like personal hygiene, cross contamination, time and temperature abuse, receiving and storage, proper cooking temperatures, food safety management systems, and training employees will be discussed.  The course includes lectures, discussions, presentations, activities, and assignments.

The course is 16 hours in length.  You must attend all class sessions to be eligible to sit for the exam.  A score of 75% is required to pass the exam and receive certification. 

This fee includes the short-term use of an official ServSafe manager book. Not included in this price is the cost of the online test, which will be purchased outside of this course for $36.
