ServSafe courses were developed by the National Restaurant Association (NRA) to address the growing food safety concerns of consumers.

16-Hour Manager Certification Course

This certification program provides food managers with thorough training in all areas of food safety relevant to a food service establishment. Upon successful completion of an exam, participants will receive a certificate verifying that they are a certified ServSafe Food Protection Manager. Managers with this certification meet the Michigan Food Law, Act 92 of 2000 (PDF) requirement to have a manager certified in food safety in each food service establishment.

All classes run from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Lunch is on your own. You must attend all 16 hours (both days) of class to take the certification exam. The exam is given on the second day of class. You must pass the exam with a score of 75% or higher to receive your certificate. Certification is good for 5 years.
