The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) requires that every retail foodservice operation have at least one employee who holds a “nationally recognized food safety manager certification” such as ServSafe®. Further, a certified person must be available during all hours of the operation (they do not need to be present, but accessible). To receive and maintain certification all individuals are required to pass a certification exam every five (5) years. The TAP Online Food Safety Certification Course, offered by Penn State Cooperative Extension, is for individuals preparing for the exam. After completing the online course and passing the proctored, multiple-choice exam with a score of 75% or higher, participants will receive a ServSafe® certificate, which meets the PDA requirement for food safety certification. This certification is valid for 5 years. This course offered by Penn State Cooperative Extension will help your establishment fulfill this PDA requirement for certification. If you are uncertain as to whether you need certification, contact your regional PDA office. Food Safety eLearning Program
