ServSafe Food Safety Certification

In 2001, the Louisiana Legislature passed Act 506 stating all food service establishments are required to have either the owner or a designated employee certified in food safety.

This course is designed to enable you to earn the required ServSafe Certification. The course material provides accurate, detailed information for all levels of food service employees including those who handle, receive, clean, store, prepare, and serve food. Food safety challenges will be addressed, as well as practical ways to resolve these challenges. Also, the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) method to avert problems caused by food-borne illnesses will be covered.

This course will use a ServSafe textbook, which covers a review of sanitary food preparation. The ServSafe certification exam is given during the final hour of the course. This certification is valid for five (5) years. ServSafe textbook included.

The instructor strongly advises you to pick up your ServSafe textbook prior to the class- doing so will help you prepare for the exam. The Office of Professional & Continuing Education is housed in LITE, which is located at 537 Cajundome Blvd in Lafayette.

Students who pick up the ServSafe Certification textbook early, will be responsible for bringing the book and the exam answer sheet back to the class. Students who fail to return to class with the book and exam answer sheet will not be allowed to take the class and will have to re-register and pay for the next class.
