ServSafe Manager Training

ServSafe Manager is an advanced food safety certification developed by the National Restaurant Association (NRA) for foodservice and hospitality personnel. The ServSafe brand allows you to offer the highest standard of training to your staff. It also keeps customers safe with advanced food safety knowledge and complies with the Demonstration of Knowledge (DOK) and Person in Charge (PIC) requirements within the Washington State Food Code.

ServSafe brings together current best practices in advanced food safety, as well as current best practices for instruction to meet our industry’s changing needs. Students stay engaged in current state health code regulations and learn how to demonstrate knowledge of foodborne disease prevention, application of HACCP principles, and the requirements of the Washington State Food Code to the regulatory authority.

How Our Classes Work

Our ServSafe Manager classes are offered in a one-day review format. Upon registration, attendees will be mailed a ServSafe Manager book to study prior to attending the class. The WHAEF closes registration for classes two weeks in advance of the class date to ensure each attendee has ample time to study.

The day of the class the attendee will receive approximately four hours of review of the ServSafe Manager materials. Review is followed by the ServSafe Manager exam, proctored by the class instructor. Attendees are allowed two hours to complete the exam.

Accommodations are available for those who need translators or have a disability. Please contact the Education Foundation for details.

Proctored Exams

We do offer exam proctoring services for those have completed the online ServSafe Manager Course and can provide proof of completion. We cannot proctor an exam without proof of completion of the online course. To take advantage of our proctoring services, email us with a class date from our class schedule and confirmation the attendee wants a proctored exam. From there, the attendee will be registered for an exam. 

We can also proctor exams for large groups anywhere in Washington. Please email us to set this up.
