ServSafe® Food Safety Manager Course

Please note that the last time we will be offering this course is September 17, 2019.

From outbreaks of E. coli and botulism to Hepatitis A and Norovirus, food borne illnesses cost the United States billions of dollars each year while the fiscal impact on commercial, non-profit and municipal enterprises can total thousands of dollars in addition to possible closure of the kitchen facility, according to the National Restaurant Association.

As a result, Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County (CCEUC) offers a ServSafe® Food Safety Manager Certification course for food service managers and employees who work in restaurants, schools, commercial kitchens, catering, hotels and lodging, hospitals, festival and event venues, and at non-profit facilities; anywhere that food is prepared, handled and served.

Our program is designed to facilitate a review of the textbook and take the certification exam. The certification, which is valid for five years, allows participants to bolster their resumes and build their skill base in regard to food safety.

The non-refundable fee for the one-day program is $150 per person. Participants must be at least 18 years old. It is required to purchase the ServSafe Manager, 7th Edition textbook from ServSafe and read it prior to the program.  It is recommended to pre-register at least 30 days prior to date of course to insure a seat and allow enough time to read the textbook.
