Culinary 1 Students Earn ServSafe Certification
Students in Ronita Jacobsen’s Culinary I class this year had the opportunity to participate in the National Restaurant Association ServSafe Food Handler course. As a certified ServSafe Instructor and Proctor, Jacobsen was able to instruct and assess students for this industry certification. The ServSafe Food Handler course covered five sections, which included Basic Food Safety, Personal Hygiene, Cross-contamination and Allergens, Time and Temperature, and Cleaning and Sanitation. Throughout the course students gained much knowledge regarding food safety, worked through real case scenarios, and put into practice food safety guidelines.
“In order to receive certification students needed to receive a 75% or higher on the final exam.” stated Jacobsen. “Our students scored 95% or above.” Students receiving the ServSafe Food Handler Certificate are Britni Gutz, Will Gunning, Peace Akinnigbagbe, Jozlyn Anderson, Braden Waldow, Heather Pendergast, and Taylor Golden.
