Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Fort Bend County, is offering a food manager certification training course. This two day program will be offered for $115 on January 23rd and 30th at Fort Bend County Extension Office, 1402 Band Road, Ste. 120, Rosenberg. Cost includes training, materials, and the State food manager certification examination. The certificate will be valid for five years. Registration deadline is January 9th.
This program is designed to not only prepare foodservice managers to pass the certification examination, it will provide valuable education regarding the safe handling of food. Almost 50 cents of every dollar Americans spend on food is spent on meals prepared away from home. Therefore, careful attention to food safety will help keep customers safe and satisfied.
By attending the course, foodservice managers will learn about:
Identifying potentially hazardous foods and common errors in food handling;
preventing contamination and cross-contamination of food;
teaching and encouraging personal hygiene for employees;
complying with government regulations; maintaining clean utensils, equipment and surroundings;
and controlling pests.
