Food safety in a food service establishment is non-negotiable. Each year, an estimated 6 to 12 million Americans contract food-borne illness as a result of contamination by micro-organisms. These illnesses are preventable. Proper training is the key to preparing food in a safe environment.
The ServSafe® program is the premiere food safety certification offered by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF). The program is designed for the food-service professional. A ServSafe® certificate from the NRAEF will be awarded to individuals who complete the course and receive a passing grade on the exam. Instructors are registered ServSafe® instructors with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. The cost for the course covers the training, textbook, lunch (for the full day class) and certification examination from the NRAEF. This training helps prepare your establishment to meet Delaware Food Code regulations.The registration cost for each ServSafe class is $175.00 which includes the training, textbook and certification examination. A ServSafe certificate from the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) will be awarded to individuals who complete the course and receive a passing grade on the exam. Those who wish to retest and already have a current ServSafe 7th edition book can do so by paying $85. Recertification for expired ServSafe certification is $85.
