Why are our classes so special
1. All our ServSafe instructors are Certified Professionals in Food Safety (CP-FS). This certification is from the National Environmental Health Association and is much more intensive than simply being a ServSafe approved instructor (which we are as well).
2. Our instructors are the authors of “Food Safety for Managers,” a textbook on food safety that is used by instructors and trainers throughout the US. They are engaging speakers who keep a dull subject interesting. Both instructors are frequent guests on national television programs.
3. We have trained more managers and issued more ServSafe Certificates than anyone in New England.
5. All our instructors actively work as food safety inspectors – this experience in the field translates to a better instructor in class.
6. We don’t cancel and reschedule classes once we have your money (a nasty trick of low priced imitators popping up online.)

|About The Exam||
At the end of each open class we offer the ServSafe certification exam. We use the ServSafe exam which is ANSI approved and accepted nationwide by every jurisdiction, everywhere in the country. The exams are multiple choice questions with 90 questions on each exam. You must score a 75% to become certified. You can get the exam in English, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, French Canadian, and large print English. When using a foreign language exam, the questions will appear on the exam in both the foreign language and in English. It is a closed book/notes test. Translators are NOT allowed unless approved in advance by the testing organization. Some people finish in as little as 30 minutes while others may take the full 3 hours to finish. The ANSI Approved/ServSafe exam is sent to the ServSafe headquarters for scoring. We do not have control or influence in this scoring (for security purposes) and it takes about 2 weeks to get the results back from the scoring center.
The textbook we use is the most up to date version of Food Safety for Managers. It comes in English and Spanish, and we can provide alternate books in Korean, and Chinese. If you have an older book or from a different author you may be able to use it as long as you make careful note of the several major changes in the food code. The 2012 Food Safety for Managers is written at a 9th grade reading level and is about 80 pages long. This textbook is a concise study guide to help prepare you for the exam.
