“South Dakota food service establishments are required to have at least one person on staff that has passed an approved eight-hour food service manager sanitation training and certification program. ServSafe is an approved course,” said Lavonne Meyer, Extension food safety specialist and certified ServSafe instructor.
She adds that law requires that this certificate needs to be renewed every five years. This class meets the requirements of South Dakota Department of Health Standards.
