REAL TIME EXPERIENCE
Hands-on training in a functioning cafe, catering, and private event settings. Students cross train in a variety of roles, with professional and trained staff.
Students are prepared through our program to acquire nationally recognized ServSafe certification, a food and beverage safety training and certificate program administered by the National Restaurant Association. This 5 year certification is accredited by ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection.
ServSafe is recognized by more federal, state and local jurisdictions than any other food safety certification.
