• Food safety is the basis for maintaining a vibrant hospitality industry in MN and the US. We rely on qualified people to ensure the food we eat outside of our homes is safe. The high standards and enforcement of strict government regulations along the whole supply chain from farm to plate.

    Managing a successful food service operation is not a simple task and requires expertise in several different areas. Food safety education is the foundation of that expertise. In MN, the state has set specific standards for every business in the food handling industry. Most every food establishment needs a certified food manager per location. The Minnesota Department of Health, Environmental Services regulates food safety standards and manages the food safety certification program.

    We offer two classes related to food careers:
