Purdue Extension offering food handler course

Purdue Extension is offering a ServSafe Food Handler course from 9 a.m. to noon Dec. 13 at the Jackson County Courthouse, 111 S. Main St., Brownstown.

The course is for anyone who needs basic food safety and food handling training, including home-based vendors, food service workers, volunteers or others who work with food who only need the basic training. It focuses on basic food safety, personal hygiene, cross-contamination and allergens, time and temperature and cleaning and sanitation.

The training includes a booklet and assessment and fulfills the food safety training requirements mandated for home-based vendors in the Indiana. After passing the assessment, the participant’s Food Handler Certificate of Achievement will be documented with the National Restaurant Association.

This course is not intended for food service managers. To obtain your food service manager certification, you must take the ServSafe Food Protection Manager course and exam.

The deadline to register is Dec. 5. For information or to register, visit cvent.me/Q8yRLQ.
