ServSafe Food Safety Training

ServSafe Food Safety Training

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.
