Which Exam and Study Options are Right for Me?

We wrote the book on food safety - no really we did!  As authors of a nationally recognized food safety textbook, Berger Food Safety is the most experienced, reliable provider of ServSafe Certification in New England.  More than 33,000 have been ServSafe certified in our 20 year history.  We have many combinations of food safety classes, study techniques and exam options that will cover your needs whether you are a manager taking this for the first time or re-certifying for the second, third or even fourth time.

Our ServSafe managers certification exams and the managers food protection classes are for those being certified for the first time and those who need to renew their expired ServSafe certification. We have many options for your ServSafe certification so you can customize your training and get certified faster. You can get certified for as little as $85

There are a few different ways to study and pass the ServSafe exam

1. Register for an exam only price:  written or online at our office $89, or online at home $99

2. (Optional) Choose a study method: Study using our text book - $29 or study using our online Course - $29 or study using both! - $49

3. (Optional) Add live classroom time with an instructor: Attend a half day servsafe classin person or virtual via Zoom Silver Fast trac -  $35 or Attend a full day servsafe class in person or virtual via Zoom Gold Standard Class -  $70 ( in person includes lunch)

Most states (like Massachusetts) simply require that you pass the exam. There is no requirement to take any of the food safety classes we offer, don't get me wrong, our food safety classes are still the most effective way to do this. You just need to get enough knowledge to pass the ServSafe exam. It doesn't matter if you are re-certifying or taking it for the first time, everyone must take the current exam, and the exam is harder than ever so study, study, study!. A few states like Rhode Island (get more details about Rhode Island requirements here.) will actually require a specific number of training hours. Please check with your local health department or contact us if you are unsure of your state and local requirements. We also offer these classes at your location.
