  • Crawford and Franklin County Extension office offers ServSafe Manager Course

    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 & 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 on November 10th, at the Franklin County Extension Office located at 300 B Airport Road, Ozark. The training will take place beginning at 9:00 a.m. on November 10th. The course will cost $140 for New Managers and $60 for re-certifications. The course cost pays for the book and the exam. Participants who pass the exam will receive a ServSafe Food Manager Certification good for five years. All participants must pre-register and pay by October 27th. Class size is limited. Once the Servsafe books are distributed, they are non-refundable.

    If you have any questions or would like to register, please contact the Franklin County Extension Office at 479-667-3720 . You can also email Casey Ford at cford@uada.edu . or the Crawford County Extension Office at 479-474-5286.
