Learn about foodborne illness, how to prevent it and how to train employees in food sanitation. Choose from several online, classroom and language options. Earn nationally accredited food safety certification from the National Restaurant Association.
The Pa Department of Agriculture Food Employee Certification Act, 3 Pa C.S.A. 6501 - 6510 as amended, requires one supervisory employee per food facility to become certified in food safety and sanitation by taking a nationally recognized food manager certification exam and obtaining a National Certificate of Completion. National exams are those that have been approved by the Conference of Food Protection.
Nationally recognized exams include: Prometrics, National Restaurant Association (ServSafe), National Registry and 360Training.com, Inc. and can be found at: https://www.ansica.org/wwwversion2/outside/ALLdirectoryListing.asp?menuID=8&prgID=8&status=4, Be cautious you are taking a Manager Certification course and NOT a Food Handlers Course. A Manager Certification course will end with you taking a proctored exam, even if you take a computer based or home based course. If you take a home based or computer based course you will typically be issued a Certificate of Completion. This certificate must be taken to a proctor to take the final exam and obtain the National Certificate of Completion.
