So you think you’re ready for the ServSafe exam? It is more difficult than it was just 5 years ago so make sure you spend some time studying. There are a bunch of changes between the code in 2007 and the code used today and the questions are more complex.
In most states, like Massachusetts, to become a certified manager in food protection or to become re-certified you must pass one of the 3 nationally accepted exams: the ServSafe exam, The National Registry of Food Safety Professionals (NRSFP) exam, or the ProMetrics exam. It is the same exam whether you are re-certifying or taking the exam for the first time. We use both ServSafe exams and the NRSFP exams as they are both accepted nationwide. The exams are multiple choice questions with 80-90 questions on each exam. You must score 75% or higher to become certified. Please be aware that in New England, only Rhode Island requires 15 hours of training in addition to passing the exam all other NE states do not have this additional requirement. Always check with your local jurisdiction to be sure of the requirements for your state, county and town haven’t changed.
Your choices if you need to take the exam only are:
- Take a written exam at the end of the live open class – $75
- Take an online or written exam in the Boston office – $100
- Take the exam (written or online at your office) - $300 for the first student and $100 for each additional student.
ServSafe Exam Notes:
Both the online and written exams must be administered by an approved proctor (which means you can’t take an online exam at home, alone – I know, that’s a bummer!). Written exam results are available in 2 weeks. Online exam results are available immediately.
To take the written test at the end of any of our open classes, follow the link below to register, choose the date, then answer “No” to the “Full Class?” option. This will reveal the choice to eliminate the class and the book leaving you with just the exam. The price will be reduced to the correct amount ($75). The exam starts at 3PM. You can get the written exam in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, French Canadian, Japanese and large print English.
