 8 Hour ServSafe Class - Dickinson County: Date September 17, 2013

Michigan law requires that all food service establishments must employ full-time managers who have earned state-approved certification and can demonstrate a working knowledge of food safety, food sanitation and the concepts and principles of Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP). Regulation 570 was adopted Oct. 2, 2009 to supplement the requirements of the Michigan Food Law.

An 8 hour training is offered to those who have previously been Certified as a Food Protection manager.

The 8 hour training provides food service workers with updated information needed to successfully pass the ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Exam for recertification. Following completion of the course, participants complete the examination.

Course Description

All courses are presented by certified ServSafe® instructors. Participants must complete the entire course and answer at least 75 percent of the examination questions correctly to earn certification.

Who should attend this class?
Managers who work at:

  • restaurants
  • institutional settings like school cafeterias, nursing home dining halls, etc.
  • public events where food is prepared and served
  • kitchens operated by churches, civic groups and other nonprofit organizations

 Why take this class?

Participants learn everything from how to correctly wash their hands to what it takes to safely prepare, serve and manage a food service establishment. They leave the course equipped to share their knowledge with others. In addition to meeting state requirements for food safety training, ServSafe® enables students learn strategies that can improve the efficiency of kitchen operations.

The 8 hour ServSafe® course is designed to give previously certified food safety managers an update to the changes to the Michigan Food Code and a review of key principles and practices of proper food sanitation and application of HACCP.
