CREAMERY PA – ServSafe, the brand name for the food handler certification course created by the National Restaurant Association, has been scheduled for Aug. 16 and 17 (2011; Tuesday and Wednesday) to be taught by representatives of Penn State Cooperative Extension in its offices on Route 113 in Creamery PA, between Collegeville and Skippack PA. A re-certification class has been similarly scheduled for Aug. 23.
All food service establishments in Montgomery County are required to employ at least one full-timer who is a ServSafe Certified Food Sanitation Manager. The two-day course, which costs $169, is approved for that purpose by the county Health Department. Those who complete the classes and pass the accompanying proctored, multiple-choice exam with a score of 75 or higher will receive a nationally recognized food protection certificate.
Online registration for the certification course is available here.
The re-certification course, which costs $99, is a review and update of food safety principles covered in the initial certification course. Certified food safety and sanitation managers in the county must complete a re-certification course every three years.
Online registration for the re-certification course can be found here.
