Food safety certification training Nov. 16 in San Antonio


The Texas AgriLife Extension Service will offer a food manager certification training course Nov. 16 at the AgriLife Extension office for Bexar County, 3355 Cherry Ridge Dr., suite 208, in San Antonio.

The course will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a certification exam after the completion of the classroom instruction, said Dr. Connie Sheppard, AgriLife Extension family and consumer sciences agent in Bexar County.

The program cost of $100 includes training, materials and the state food manager certification examination, Sheppard said. The cost is $60 for those wanting to take only the certification test.

During the training, food-service managers will learn about identifying potentially hazardous foods and common errors in food handling; preventing contamination and cross-contamination of food; personal hygiene for employees; complying with government regulations; maintaining clean utensils, equipment and surroundings; and controlling pests.

Sheppard said other benefits of the training include increased customer satisfaction, improved relationships with health officials and prevention of bad publicity and lawsuits due to food-borne illness.

She added that participants must bring a photo ID to take the exam. A registration form can be found at http://bexar-tx.tamu.edu/ under the Family and Consumer Sciences tab.

Substitutions may be made prior to the start of training by contacting Julie Prouse at jlommert@ag.tamu.edu .
