The ServSafe Manager’s class and exam session will be offered again Pasco County, but will look a little different this time (described below). ServSafe is the national food safety certification for those working, or planning to work, in the food industry. The ServSafe class, which is nationally recognized through the National Restaurant Association and is good for five years, will be offered in Dade City.
Instead of a morning review the day of the exam, we will offer virtual reviews. On Mondays in March, March 1, 8, and 15, there will be virtual classes led by ServSafe instructors from 9am to 11am. This is ideal for those who are doing self-study and want a live instructor throughout the month to ask questions and receive further study material. Learning activities will be implemented to keep students engaged and your participation is encouraged.
Then on Monday, March 22nd, the ServSafe exam will be taken, at 1pm. The exam is not virtual, but will be in-person at the One Stop Shop Stallings Building, located at 15029 14th Street, Dade City, FL 33523.
The exam is based off of the 7th edition textbook, which came out in 2017, and is highly recommended for studying the most current food code information. Price varies depending on whether or not you need to purchase the book, which needs three to five business days to arrive; overnight shipping is an option and will cost more, so please plan ahead and purchase your book early so you can start studying. For those who don’t pass the first time, there is the option to purchase a retest as well.
