ServSafe and ServSafe Recertification

New Jersey retail food rules (chapter 24, Sanitation in Retail Food Establishments and Food and Beverage Vending Machines) requires that if a food establishment is classified as a “Risk type 3 food establishments” there must be at least one certified food protection manager on site who is responsible for food safety operations. Through the ServSafe training program, food managers will become knowledgeable of the latest FDA Food Code and New Jersey’s food safety regulations. This comprehensive course will cover all of the required elements of safe food handling. The course will cover origins of food contamination, personal hygiene and overall employee involvement in safe food handling. Upon successful completion of the course, the managers will obtain food safety certification that is valid for five years. For those managers that have already taken the ServSafe class but need to be recertified we also have the ServSafe Recertification class available.  Servsafe is also offered in Spanish. The new mandate for all Risk 3 establishments, that takes effect in January 2015, will require one person per SHIFT to be certified in an accredited program. 

Minimum of 10 students per class session.
