ServSafe Training Offered to Food Service Professionals

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offers ServSafe®  food safety certification classes.  ServSafe® meets the criteria for an individual to become a "Certified Food Protection Manager" (CFPM).
Iowa's new Food Code (as of January 1, 1014) requires that: "at least one food establishment employee with management and supervisory responsibility be a CFPM."
The ServSafe® program blends the latest FDA Food Code, food safety research and years of food sanitation training experience.  Managers learn to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety. All content and materials are based on actual job tasks identified by foodservice industry experts.
Classes will be taught by Jill Weber, Nutrition and Wellness for ISU Extension and Outreach, and Registered ServSafe® Proctor & Certified ServSafe® Instructor since 2002. Training will be offered on the following dates and locations.  All classes are 8:30 am - 5:30 pm.
