The University of Florida’s Food Safety and Quality Program is dedicated to providing training which enables food man- agers and staff to offer Florida consumers food that is prepared in a clean and safe environment.
This training is offered through IFAS Cooperative Extension County Offices throughout the State of Florida. We conduct a comprehensive training that provides the most up-to-date information and current regulations. University of Florida County Faculty teach the program and can create a personalized training for your establishment.
Upon successful completion of the training, participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance from the University of Florida Food Safety and Quality Program.
Once you pass the ServSafe® Manager’s Exam, you will receive a National Certification valid for five years. Certification is required in Florida for food managers of all establishments licensed by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and selected licensees of the Department of Health.
