LA PLUME — Keystone College will conduct a ServSafe certification course Wednesday, July 20, in the Fireplace Lounge, 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 8:30 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 of the program is $169 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 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.
