ServSafe Food Handler

Course Description

The ServSafe Food Handler course is for anyone who needs basic food safety and food handling training, including home-based vendors, food service workers, volunteers, or others who work with food who only need the basic training. This course is NOT intended for foodservice managers. To obtain your foodservice manager certification, you must take the ServSafe Food Protection Manager course and exam.
