Top-Notch Food Safety Staff Training

Top-Notch training will provide the knowledge they need to provide safe food to your customers.

  • Why is practicing food safety important
  • What can go wrong and the cost to the employees and owners
  • How food handlers can prevent contamination of the food they serve
  • How to handle food during the flow of food
  • Allergens
  • Employee Illness

Not everyone needs the Manager level training and ServSafe certification, but all your staff should receive food safety training. In the past, I have offered the 2-hour food handler training and to be honest I never really felt like I was getting through to the staff. After being a food service owner for over 12 years, then teaching for 10 years, providing inspection services for over 7 years I have taken my experience and knowledge and created a staff level training that explains what typically goes wrong in retail and how they can play a positive role in preventing mistakes from happening.
The training is 3 hours and can be held at your location or at mine. A self-graded exam will be provided to test the student’s application of knowledge.
Cost for general training is $300 for first 10 students and $10 for each additional student. Course includes Top-Notch reference book and certificate of completion from SMF Training and Consulting.
