The National Restaurant Association (NRA) has launched its ServSafe Manager Online Course, 6th Edition – the web-based version of its ServSafe Manager Book, 6th Edition training program. The ServSafe Manager Book, 6th Edition for classroom training was introduced in April.
"Online training is an increasingly popular solution to preparing managers to keep food safe in today's busy restaurant and foodservice establishments," said Paul Hineman, executive vice president of the NRA. "Affordable and flexible, our new ServSafe Manager Online Course adds convenience to staff professional development while maintaining the high-quality results customers see with all our ServSafe training products. A trained workforce that is better prepared to keep your business and customers protected is an investment in your future success."
The new ServSafe Manager Online Course, 6th Edition is bilingual in English or Spanish and features interactive activities that allow the learner to practice real-life situations, progress bar to keep pace, text and audio so the learner can both read and hear course content, a glossary of food safety terms, printable study guides and reference materials, and a post test. The online course is available for Windows and Mac desktop in a variety of browsers via Adobe Flash Player, as well as on corporate learning management systems (LMS). A demo of the course may be viewed online.
ServSafe 6th Edition contains the latest FDA Food Code updates (2011 supplement to the 2009 FDA Food Code) and is based on a new job task analysis developed exclusively by restaurant operators across segments, academic bodies and regulatory experts.
The ServSafe program is certified through the American National Standards Institute-Conference for Food Protection (ANSI-CFP).
