ServSafe Certification

Keystone College is teaming up with the University of Scranton Small Business Development Center to bring you ServSafe Certification Classes/Exams.

ServSafe, a nationally recognized certification program for safe food handling practices, meets Pennsylvania regulations and is accredited by the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation.
