Keystone College will conduct a ServSafe certification course on Wednesday, January 25, in Evans Hall, Hibbard Campus Center.
The training will cover topics involving food-borne illnesses and health risks that workers in commercial food service establishments must learn. The in-class component of the program will begin at 8 a.m. and continue to approximately 5 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 of the program is $179 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, please contact Brenda Lidy at (570) 945-8334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture regulations state that a food service establishment should employ or designate at least one certified supervisory employee who has 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.
