  • Keystone College to offer ServSafe Certification Training

Posted: 09/04/2013

La Plume – Keystone College will offer ServSafe certification courses on September 18, October 15, November 12, and January 14, 2014 in Evans Hall on the College’s campus in La Plume.

Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture regulations state that a food service establishment shall employ or designate at least one certified supervisory employee who had completed and passed an approved certification course. ServSafe, a nationally recognized certification program for safe food handling practices, meets Pennsylvania regulations and is accredited by the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation.

The training will cover topics involving food-borne illnesses and health risks that commercial food service establishments must learn in order to provide safe food for customers.

The in-class component of the program will begin at 8 a.m. and continue to approximately 5:30 p.m., depending upon completion of the exam. Participants are expected to review the ServSafe textbook for a minimum of 7.5 hours prior to the scheduled course. Cost for the program is $160 and includes a textbook, lunch, and a one hour USDA presentation.

Due to the self-study requirement, participants must register no later than seven days prior to the class. Upon registration, manuals will be mailed to participants. To register, contact Brenda Lidy at 570-945-8334.
