The ICTC continues to follow the Governor’s Wolf’s mandate for school closures. According to the last update, all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed indefinitely as a response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. ICTC has posted it’s Continuity of Education Plan in an effort to inform students and parents about our current plan of instruction.
The ICTC will continue to monitor this situation closely. We are working with sending school Districts, the ARIN IU28, post-secondary institutions and industry certification providers to assist us in offering meaningful educational opportunities to keep our students engaged in the educational process.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) food employee certification regulations states that food establishments regulated by the PDA or a local health agency must employ at least one supervisory employee who has successfully completed a certified food-safety training course. The PDA requires those seeking food safety certification to pass a certification exam every five years. This course fulfills the PDA requirements for the food employee certification regulation.
The National Restaurant Association will certify participants who complete the ServSafe® course and pass the exam in food safety and sanitation. If you are uncertain as to whether you need certification, contact your regional PDA office.
