The University of Florida/Bay County Extension is offering a Food Safety and Quality Program, which is dedicated to providing training that enables food managers and staff to offer Florida consumers food that is prepared in a clean and safe environment.
The comprehensive training will provide up-to-date information along with current food service regulations.
Upon successful completion of the training, participants will receive a Certificate of Achievement from the University of Florida Food Safety and Quality Program.
Once they pass the ServSafe Manager’s Exam, they will receive a National Certification valid for five years. Certification is required in Florida for food managers of all establishments licensed by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and selected licensees of the Department of Health.
All classes are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will be held at the University of Florida/Bay County Extension Office, which is located at 2728 E. 14th Street.
