  • We use Nationally approved tests such as Prometric's CPFM, NRA's ServSafe or State Food Safety (for online at home testing)

  • Simply Safe Foodservice Certified (SSFC) comprises two levels that are for workers who don't need national certification but wouldn't it be nice if they knew enough to pass a test.  Worker level with no "bug" names and lots of cleaning, sanitizing and hand washing.  Supervisor level with sufficient "bug" names that they could react to a customer comment.  Currenly only Supervisor level is available online.  Contact us for how to take Worker level.

what goes on in homes is scary.  the P.i.c.k. could be a child or adult who knows the 5-second rule is not a real rule.  your 6 year old might be telling you, "mommy you can't leave that on the counter. 

AND DO IT NOW AND SAVE $10 - A truly limited time offer at only $19.95 for this course which could save you thousands in doctor bills.
