Kilgore College will offer an online training certificate program in food and beverage safety beginning June 15.

The program, called ServSafe, is administered by the National Restaurant Association and is accredited by ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection.

Once students begin the course, 90 days will be allowed to complete it until the course is deactivated on July 31.

The course will cover personal hygiene, cross contamination, time and temperature, cleaning, sanitizing and more.

Other areas of study will include personal cleanliness; sanitary practices with food preparation; cause, investigation and control of illness caused by food contamination (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points); and work place safety standards.

A practice exam will be given at the end of the course to help prepare for the proctored ServSafe Manager Certification exam.

To complete the course, the student must pass the ServSafe Manager’s Certification Test, taken in-person with a registered proctor.

Exam proctors are available on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. by appointment only.

Cost of the online class is $192 which includes the proctor fee.
