Ivy Tech Community College Tell City Career & Technology Center is now offering a one-day food handler course which will provide individuals the certification they need to legally process, serve, and sell food for public consumption.
The ServSafe® certification course will be offered on Wednesday, June 20, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost of the course and exam is $175.
The Indiana Code 410 IAC 7-22 requires mandatory certification for all food service operations. In 2006, the Conference for Food Protection, in conjunction with the American National Standards Institute, developed a national standard for measurement of food safety knowledge that has universal acceptance by state and local food protection agencies and the food industry in general. At least one individual per food establishment must possess this certification and oversee food safety operations within the establishment.
ServSafe is one of only five exams that meet the Indiana certification requirements for food safety. The Ivy Tech course includes ServSafe® certificate (valid for five years), recognition from the International Food Safety Council, and permanent registration with the National Restaurant Association Education Foundation.
Register in person at Ivy Tech Community College Tell City Career & Technology Center at 1034 31st St, Tell City, Indiana, or by phone at 812-429-9810. Space is limited.
Textbooks are also available at the Tell City Career & Technology Center. Advance study is recommended. The certification exam will be given immediately following the class. Two pieces of identification are required to take the exam, including one photo ID with signature.
