ServSafe Classess Offered to Food Service Professionals

Iowa State University Extension - Woodbury County offers several ServSafe® classes a year for food service professionals. ServSafe® training will provide knowledge every food service provider must know about. The class will address food hazards and proper food handling practices in order to keep food safe and protect the establishment against the costly nightmare of a foodborne-illness outbreak. Participants will learn ways of prevention, regulatory requirements, and how to improve food quality. Class size is limited and fills up well ahead of the class date so early registration is necessary. November and December 2014 classes are Wednesday, November 19 and Tuesday, December 9 (snow date December 10) from 8:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
Classes will be taught by Renee Sweers, Nutrition and Health Specialist for ISU Extension and Outreach and Carol Larvick, UNL Extension Dakota County both are certified ServSafe® Instructor. To view the dates, locations and access the registration form, click here.

Participants will have the option of testing for certification upon training completion. Those who score 75% or higher on the exam will be ServSafe® certified for five years by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF).
