Do I Need a Book?

Although not required, a book would be helpful for those taking the ServSafe Food Manager course in NC. We highly suggest you pick up a copy of the 7th edition, as it contains over 300 pages of material. We will lead a comprehensive review during the course, but having a copy of your own to study before the class is beneficial.

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

As soon as you place your order with TSC Associates, we will begin processing it so that you can get your ServSafe book as soon as possible. We offer two options when registering for class; one that includes the book and one without a book.

Option 1 is the ultimate package and comes with a ServSafe Food Protection Manager Book, our comprehensive class, one proctored exam, and, with a passing score, a certificate valid for five years.

What Is the Passing Score?

While 70% is the passing score, TSC Associates LLC encourages our students to strive for higher marks.

Is this required in the state of North Carolina?

Yes, the North Carolina Food Code requires at least one person on-site at all times of operation during food preparation. See South Carolina Food Code – Chapter 2-102.11 Based on the RISKS inherent to the FOOD operation, during inspections and upon request the PERSON IN CHARGE shall demonstrate to the REGULATORY AUTHORITY knowledge of foodborne disease prevention, application of the HAZARD Analysis and CRITICAL CONTROL POINT principles, and the requirements of this Code.

ServSafe Food Handlers books used for this training.

North Carolina does not require staff in a food service establishment to have food safety training at this time. It is a good practice to teach food safety to all food handlers. The ServSafe Food Handler program is a great foundation for food safety and it is easy to teach and learn.

(This training is primarily for wait staff, bartenders, cooks, dishwashers, etc. Managers would take the ServSafe Managers Course.)
