The Clinton County Health District will be offering a ServSafe Manager food safety training course in July.

The course meets the requirements for the Ohio Manager Certification in food protection, formerly known as Ohio Level II Certification.

For each licensed food facility at a risk level III and risk level IV, it is required to have at least one employee with this Ohio Manager Certification.

This employee would have a supervisory and management responsibility, the authority to direct and control food preparation, and service for the food service operation and retail food establishment.

The course will take two days to complete with an additional day for the exam. Attendance is required for all three days and attendees must pass the exam to gain certification.

The course will start at 8:30 a.m. on both Monday, July 22 and Wednesday, July 24. The exam will start at 9 a.m. on Friday July 26.

The course will be instructed and proctored by Katie Burwinkel, Registered Sanitarian with the Clinton County Health District, Certified ServSafe Instructor and Registered ServSafe Proctor.
