If you have never had a license or your license has expired, you should take the one-day certification course. Upon receipt of your completed registration form and payment, the ORA will send you the new ServSafe® Essentials textbook. You must make a 75% or greater to pass this test.
If you have a current Certified Food Service Operators License, according to health department regulations, you must renew it every three years. Check your certificate from your local health department for the expiration date. If it expires soon, you will need to reserve your space in the next available re-certification class. The half-day re-certification class is only offered quarterly. This class is offered with an optional ServSafe® or Oklahoma re-certification exam.
Benefits of the Program
The ServSafe® Sanitation Course is a nationally recognized program which enables you to meet local health department requirements. As an ORA member, you can receive discounts on ServSafe® video training materials and books.
One Day Certification
We know you are busy, so we designed our course to take only one day. We have packed it with important information and an exam that earns you industry-acknowledged national certification. The certification courses are held from 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Lunch is provided. The last hour of the class is dedicated to taking the necessary exam. 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. Participants are notified of passage and receive their certificates by mail.

How To Register CLICK HERE to find the ServSafe® date of your choice and register. As soon as we receive your registration and payment we will send you the textbook. We strongly encourage you to read this book and complete the study questions at the end of each chapter. This is a fast pace class that will cover food safety principles in a short amount of time. A Diagnostic Test is available for download above. This is highly recommended because it contains information that will help you prepare for the exam. Also, space is limited in each class and courses have been filling quickly. We recommend that you register at least two weeks prior to attending to allow time for shipping and study.
Although the class is taught in English, the textbook is available in Spanish, Chinese and Korean. The test is available in Spanish, Korean, Chinese, French Canadian, Japanese and large print. Call us at least one month in advance to be sure we have the test in stock for the language you need.
