“This is an exciting opportunity to serve Indiana employers and deliver a high quality, high demand required training for food service managers, which supports the food service and hospitality industries,” said Aaron Baute, vice president for business, logistics and supply chain, Ivy Tech Community College. “We have more than 100 classes already scheduled to run across the state at Ivy Tech locations, which is expected to serve more than 1,300 students.”
The ServSafe program provides food safety training, exams and educational materials to foodservice managers. Students studying for this certificate can take the program online or in a classroom at one of the many classes located on Ivy Tech campuses throughout Indiana.
“The Indiana Restaurant & Lodging Association is excited to grow our partnership with Ivy Tech Community College by now offering ServSafe Training at Ivy Tech locations across the state,” said Patrick Tamm, Indiana Restaurant & Lodging Association President and CEO. “With the help of Ivy Tech, members of Indiana’s hospitality industry will have more access than ever to ServSafe classes, resources and more to ensure food safety remains the number one priority.”
