Troyan Allen a student enrolled in Donaldsonville High School’s ProStart program recently completed the requirements and passed the test for ServSafe certification.

The purpose of the ServSafe program is to deliver consistent food safety training for employees and ensure that food-service employees have the highest standards in training and certification.The five sections are Basic Food Safety, Personal Hygiene, Cross-Contamination and Allergens, Time and Temperature, and Cleaning and Sanitation. This safety- and sanitation-based certification means the students are licensed to work in any restaurant or food-service establishment.

The certification also makes students more marketable for employment, because Louisiana requires at least one food-service manager in any restaurant or food-service establishment has completed the ServSafe training and passed the exam.

I am very proud of Troyan,” said Angela Amedee, ProStart Instructor. “The ServSafe certification exam requires a rigorous study effort. For those students interested in careers in the food service industry, it is one of the most relevant work-ready credentials they can earn to give them an edge when applying for positions or seeking promotions.”
