A one-day course for food industry employees to earn the ServSafe® certification for food safety will be held Monday, May 23, in Room 502, McCarthy Hall, on the Dabney S. Lancaster Community College Clifton Forge campus, beginning at 9:00 am. The instructor will be former DSLCC Culinary Arts Program Head Chef Ed McArdle.
This course is being offered in response to Virginia Department of Health regulations that went into effect on July 1, 2018, requiring food establishments to have at least one employee with supervisory/management responsibility and the authority to direct/control food preparation and service to be a Certified Food Protection Manager.
Topics will include basic food safety, personal hygiene, cross-contamination, time and temperature, cleaning and sanitation. The ServSafe textbook is required reading for the class and for the exam, and must be completed prior to attending class. The tuition fee of $139 includes a loaner textbook and the exam fee. The certification exam will be given at the end of the class.
