It's the law - Serve Safe Safe Food Handling training is required for California servers. Programs, such as ServSafe, are effective food handling training programs that teach servers about basic food safety practices when preparing or serving meals to customers. According to California law, all employees who handle food or serve alcohol are required to meet the state requirements and obtain a certification of training.
Employees must remain in compliance. Employers and employees are both responsible for having a valid certification upon handling food in a restaurant and/or bar. Servsafe, accredited by the American National Standards Institute-Conference for Food Protection, teaches employees how to safely prepare, cook, and maintain a clean environment.
Certificate of passing test is included in our training program. The 90 minute training session covers a variety of different sections including Basic Food Safety, Time and Temperature, Personal Hygiene, Cleaning and Sanitation, as well as Cross-contamination and Allergens. An online, or paper-based, test covers various questions pertaining to these topics and students will receive their certificate if once they meet the passing requirements.
Certificate is valid for three years. Restaurant servers and employees who handle food in a dining establishment will need to have an active certificate for up to 3 years. Certified employees who handle food or alcohol can work in a variety of different food businesses as this certificate is transferable.
