Food Safety Certifications

Food safety certifications are necessary to work in many food and beverage related environments, including for food and beverage servers, people who work in food preparation and people who work in an institutional setting, as well as large scale food manufacturing. Many employers also have a preference for candidates who can meet a high caliber of skills and standards for food safety and quality. Additionally, possession of the right qualifications can also help a person with industry experience advance their career, including training others.
