ServSafe Train-the-Trainer

ServSafe® is the industry’s leading food safety training and certification program, recognized by more federal, state and local jurisdictions than any other food safety certification and meets or exceeds requirements for local regulatory compliance.

The Food Safety Train-the-Trainer Certification Program is designed for those who will be training foodservice personnel.  This course encompasses an activity-focused program using hands-on applications to drive food safety knowledge.  It will focus specifically on the diverse education levels, languages and cultures that often make up a foodservice workforce, and how to successfully deliver the ServSafe® Food Safety Certification training to them.

Each participant will receive and learn to use a complete instructor training kit that includes multimedia tools, training manuals and operational props.  This kit has been previewed and used by Paster Training’s lead trainers and instructors.  By successfully completing the requirements for this course, participants will earn two certifications:

Certified ServSafe® Trainer, from National Restaurant Association Solutions, LLC.
Certified World-Class Food Safety Trainer, from Paster Training, Inc.


With more certified trainers than any other private training organization, Paster Training is well qualified to provide your operation with high information retention, immediately actionable improvement steps and clear execution advice.  Participants can enhance their training skills and will learn how to more effectively convey vital information within the ServSafe® Food Safety training curriculum.
