Do I Need a Book?

While a book is not required to attend our ServSafe courses in FL, it is highly suggested. The 7th edition ServSafe Food Managers book has over 300 pages of content that can be difficult to retain from just a single class.

We suggest you order a book and study it before attending the class. In class, we will provide a variety of tools to help participants retain the material, including real-world experiences, acronyms, and other strategies. We also offer visual aids to enhance the learning experience.

How Do I Get a Book? How Quickly Will It Be Delivered?

Books can be purchased through TSC Associates, either with your registration or separately. Books are shipped via FedEx or UPS and are usually delivered within two business days. If you purchase our Option 1 when registering for Food Manager Certification, a book will be included.

What Is the Passing Score?

Participants must receive a score of at least 70% on their final exams in order to receive ServSafe Manager Food Protection Certification. Those who fail to score the minimum required will have the option of retaking the course. However, we strive to ensure all the students are given the right resources and guidance to pass the exam.

Our Class Timings

Currently, our in-person ServSafe Food Manager Certification class times are 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

Is this required in the state of Florida?

Yes, the Florida Food Code requires at least one person on-site at all times of operation during food preparation. See Florida Food Code – 64E-11.012 Manager Certification. (1) All managers who are responsible for the storage, preparation, display, and serving of foods to the public must have passed a written certification test which complies with section 509.039, Florida Statutes, within 30 days after the effective date of employment. Those managers who successfully pass the certification examination will be issued a certificate which is valid for a period of five years from the date of issuance.
