Why don't we require experience to certify?
There are two sides to every resume - Certifications & Education on one side (we do that)
and Experience (your resume) on the other side. The employer decides what they are looking for!
Our Test Partners - The Global Foodservice Institute (GFI) and the
International Food Service Executives Association (IFSEA)
to offer your certifications that will make you stand out from the competition.
Please note we add a 3% service fee for all credit card transactions.
Payment by check, direct deposit, VENMO and Zelle available with no additional service fee.
How long do the certifications last - Food Safety by law is 5 years, ServSafe Alcohol by law is 3 years. MCFE/MCFP and HACCP are good for 5 years. The rest have no expiration.
Our standard advice, however, except for food safety and Alcohol, is don't renew it. If you get to a job where they want that certification current, you can do it then. You've shown you have the knowledge and they don't really care if your Customer Service class is updated, as an example. You will have your books, slide shows and and class notes to refresh years later for a job requiring that skill set. If they care, renew it then.
