This fall one-hundred percent of the nine students enrolled in Nutrition and Foodservice class, Managing Food Protection, earned the National ServSafe Certificate by scoring 75 percent or higher on the national exam. This is the first semester that everyone passed the exam the first time; previously the pass rate was 50-60%.
The certificate shows that people know the basic information needed to serve and prepare food safely. The certificate is good for five years and is beneficial for anyone working in the foodservice industry. All students enrolled in the Nutrition and Foodservice vocation are required to pass the exam prior to graduating.
ServSafe is one of two certificates that can be earned by students in the Nutrition and Foodservice. The other is a concentrated certificate as Dietary Managers.
The students received their ServSafe certificates at the Nutrition and Foodservice annual fine-dining event at Peacock Alley in December and were recognized during the fall honoring.
Land Grant Extension employees Jan Keller and Robert Fox also earned their ServSafe certificate by taking the one-day ServSafe training from Pat Aune, UTTC Land Grant Director and Food Safety Instructor.
