The course is $125 which includes the national certification examination, course book and all course material.

Preregistration is required for all classes. The form for registration is available at and must be mailed to the address on the form before the class date. Deadline to register is for the first class is Aug. 26. Deadline for the Oct. class is Sept. 23 and the last day to register for the Nov. course is Oct. 21.

The course is a hands-on food safety class which equips one with the latest in food safety principles and practices.

The certification is good for five years and certifies the individual.
