In Oklahoma, foodservice establishments in mandated counties are required to have at least one employee who holds a Managers Certification. If you have never had a certification, your certification has expired, or you need to re-test, the ORA can help!

ServSafe® 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® 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 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® 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 ServSafe Certificate. 

Lunch is not included in this registration. Testing will begin immediately following the first half of the class. After testing is complete, all students are welcome to purchase a lunch.

ServSafe® 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. Lunch is not included in this registration.

The Annual Oklahoma ProStart Student Invitational brings together the top ProStart students to showcase their talent, passion, and skill. Come cheer on the future of the restaurant industry as high school students from around the state compete in two distinct competitions for over $50,000 in scholarship awards and the chance to represent Oklahoma in the National ProStart Invitational.

While they are all exceptional in their respective schools there can only be one top winner from each category to represent Oklahoma at the National ProStart Invitational.

The Culinary teams will show their creativity and execution as they whip up 3 courses in 1 hour.

The Management Competition is quite rigorous. Teams prove to judges that they can create a realistic restaurant concept and present it in an effective manner during their verbal presentations.

As you know there are many forms of support. If you are unable to attend the competition there are opportunities to mentor teams. The competition creates a financial challenge for schools. They are in need of equipment and product. If you would like to volunteer please contact chandy@okrestaurants.com.
