Due to these turbulent economic times business owners that require food manager as well as food handler certified employees the mandatory required expense to certify or re-certify has become a major concern and here at Texoma Food Service we would like to extend our capability to ease the costs associated with those requirements by a creative way to keep the costs greatly at a reduced rate by offering free self-aid study material that can be downloaded to prepare your employees prior to taking the certification exam.
Once you access our website (www.texomafoodservice.com) highlight food manager and you will immediately see free downloadable documents. One labeled Atlantic Food Manager Safety Study Guide in English, another document titled Serv-Safe Manager study Guide in Spanish . The other document titled Numbers Matter identify what is the importance of a specific number in relationship of having knowledge related to food safety in the FDA suggested food code that employees must have working knowledge to pass the certification exam. Once you review these documents proceed to take the food manager certification exam only tab offered by 360 training English or Spanish version which are recognized by the state of Texas, the cost will be only ($35.00). There is no need additional costs for on-line training, with the two documents you have the ability to be self taught prior to taking the exam.
Another cost saving measure is for our ANSI food handler required certification for employees in the state of Texas. The certification is provided by 360 training in English and Spanish and the cost is $7.00 and their certification is valid for 3 years as opposed to other providers that only offer a 2 year certification.
Hopefully our economy will rebound quickly but then their make a major need for new employee certification so you will have a cost controlling expense as you ramp up your business. We also have two other certifications programs provided by 360 training. TABC certification and Underground Storage Class C Certification.
Were anxious to see our classroom business resume were we can offer our nationwide certification programs (Serv-Safe and Prometrics) again but we think in the short term these certification programs can help control your costs greatly.
