Food Safety Certification Class set

By Staff | Apr 16, 2015

KAHULUI – TOBE Co. Food Safety will hold a ServSafe Food Safety Training and Certification Class on Monday, June 15, at the University of Hawaii Maui College.

The class starts at 8 a.m., and most students will be finished with the exam by about 5 p.m. Attendees must pre-register.

Tom Frigge, president of TOBE Co., said, “With new Food Safety Regulations for restaurants, this class is the best way to make sure managers and employees know what is needed to get a green placard.”

A summary of the new regulations can be found at TOBECoFoodSafety .com.

Since TOBE Co. is an approved trainer in the Employment & Training Fund program, 50 percent tuition assistance may be available if you qualify for this state-run program.

To find out if you qualify, and how much your tuition would be, call Frigge at (808) 235-0797.

“Our classes on Maui usually sell out, and we expect this one will, too,” Frigge said. “If you haven’t already reserved your seat, call soon to register, so you don’t get closed out. It will probably be two years before we have another on Maui.”

ServSafe, the Food Safety Training curriculum developed by the National Restaurant Association, is considered the gold standard for Food Safety Training.

Anyone who passes the test will receive ServSafe Certification and will meet any upcoming training requirements by the State Health Department.

To register, call Frigge at (808) 235-0797 or e-mail TFrigge@TOBECoFoodSafety.com.
