ServSafe Sanitation Training - TULSA, 10/11/17
In Oklahoma, foodservice establishments in mandated counties are required to have at least one employee who holds a Food Handler license. Certification must be renewed every 3 years in required cities and counties. If you have never had a license, your license has expired, or you need to re-test, the ORA can help!
ServSafe® Sanitation Training
The ServSafe® certification courses are held from 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., with lunch provided. Upon receipt of your completed registration form and payment, the ORA will send you the new ServSafe® Essentials textbook. The last hour of the class is dedicated to taking the necessary exam, which includes 90 multiple-choice questions. You must make 75% or greater to pass the test. Completed exams will be sent immediately to the National Restaurant Association's Educational Foundation for grading. ServSafe certificates are no longer being mailed out. They will now be available for download 5-7 business days after testing on ServSafe.com.
ServSafe® Sanitation Re-Certification
The ServSafe® re-certification courses are held from 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. In order to be eligible for re-certification you must be within 30 days of the expiration date on your Food Service Operators License (FSO). This is NOT the same as your ServSafe Certificate, which has a 5 year expiration. Oklahoma only honors the first 3 years of your ServSafe certification.
Re-certification classes require at least 10 registrants. If there are fewer than 10 in a scheduled class, they will be moved to the next regular class from 8:30am to 1:00pm. They will be notified the week prior to the re-certification class IF they have been moved.
ServSafe® Sanitation Re-Test
Retests for ServSafe certification are held from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon, and may be taken within one year of the initial exam and only after providing the date of the failed initial exam. An examinee may take the examination twice within a thirty day period, if necessary. If a third attempt is required, the examinee must wait at least sixty days from their last attempt.
