Basic Sanitation Course

  1. This 2.5 hour course will provide sanitation information for all food handlers. Anyone preparing, serving, transporting, warehousing, stocking, or handling food in any manner should complete this course. After successful completion, participants will receive a certificate valid for 3 years. This course meets the St. Charles County Food Establishment Code for general food service employees.

    Coursework
    Written assignments will not be given due to the brief nature of the class. A final exam, consisting of 50 questions, will be given during the last half-hour of the class. A score of 70 or higher is required to receive a certificate.

    Required Employees
    Based on the risk of foodborne illness inherent to particular operations, at least 1 person per establishment will still be required to complete a more extensive manager certification test, such as the ServSafe course offered by the National Restaurant Association. The Basic Certification Course is not equivalent.

    To register, fill out the form below and send it to our office along with the $20 fee. Due to high demand, employees are not enrolled until their application and fee have been received. Phone reservations are not accepted. Applications must be received at least 1 week prior to class. The class is held on the third Thursday of the month, 2 p.m. at Boone's Lick address.
