ServSafe Manager Training and Certification Seminar

ServSafe logoIf you’re interested in working in the food industry, you need ServSafe certification to be considered for the job. We offer certification training and testing to become certified for ServSafe at Goodwill Central Coast Conference Center.

Food safety training is a commitment, a mindset and a smart business practice for every restaurant and food service operation in our industry. Goodwill Central Coast presents a one-day program (8 hours) on a quarterly basis to train, test and become certified. When you register and pre-pay for the training, you will be mailed the ServSafe Book, an invaluable resource that will teach you why food safety is the most important ingredient of every meal.
