ServSafe has been the industry standard since 1919 in training millions of people how to receive, store, prepare, and serve food safely. Through the Cooperative Extension Service, we offer training and certifications for the ServSafe Food Handler, ServSafe Manager, and ServSafe Instructor and proctor programs. The Arkansas Department of Health is now requiring each food service facility to have at least one supervisory employee who has Certified Food Manager training.

A ServSafe Certified Food Manager Course will be offered May 8-9, at Simmons Bank, 100 West Grove (2nd Floor Conference Room), El Dorado, AR. The training will take place beginning at 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The exam will be on May 9th at approximately 1:00 p.m. The course will cost $140 for New Managers (course, book, and exam) and $60 for re-certifications (course and exam, no book). Participants who pass the exam will receive a ServSafe Food Manager Certification that is good for five years.

All participants must pre-register and pay by April 29. . Once the ServSafe books are distributed, they are non-refundable.
