We will be taking Serv-Safe exams in April. This is a nationally recognized certification for all foodservice professionals that will be good for five years from the National Restaurant Association. All health departments require that one person in the establishment is Serv-Safe certified, which looks really great when applying for a job. It is often a certification reserved for managers. For those students interested in continuing onto Culinary School, Serv-Safe (often referred to on a course guide as 'Sanitation') is required to even enter the program. It depends on the school, but it will be worth 2-3 credits at ANY CULINARY SCHOOL.
The bottom line: it usually costs about $200 to take the class and the exam. Of course I don't charge a fee to teach, and I also provide the texts, so all students will have to pay is the $36 to reserve their seat online to test. There is a link below to provide more info, but your student will need access to a credit/debit card to make this transaction. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
