ServSafe has been the industry standard since 1919 in training millions of people how to receive, store, prepare, and serve food safely.

Through the Cooperative Extension Service, it offers training and certifications for the ServSafe Food Handler, ServSafe Manager, and ServSafe Instructor & Proctor programs.

The Arkansas Department of Health is now requiring each food service facility to have at least one supervisory employee who has Certified Food Manager training.

Ouachita County Extension office, along with offices in Columbia and Union Counties, is offering a ServSafe Manager Course.

A ServSafe Certified Food Manager Course will be offered on Dec. 6-7, 2021 at the South Central Cooperative located at 2235 California SW in Camden. The training will take place beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 6.

The course will cost $140 for new managers and $60 for re-certifications.

The course cost pays for the book and the exam.

Participants who pass the exam will receive a ServSafe Food Manager Certification good for five years.

All participants must pre-register and pay by today, Nov. 17.

Class size is limited. Once the Servsafe books are distributed, they are non-refundable.

For questions or to register, contact the Ouachita County Extension Office at 870-231-1160.

Persons who require ADA accommodation, language and/or interpretation services for your Servsafe course instruction, and/or examination should notify the county Extension office (or other appropriate office) as soon as possible prior to the activity.
