DOST food safety team members get certification
AT least six members of the Department of Science and Technology Cebu Food Safety Team (DOST-CFST) are now certified by the US National Restaurant Association ServSafe Food Protection. The certification validates their professional credibility as international food safety managers.
Certificates were issued to Vina Antopina, John Jeremy Limon, Ethyle Iyog, Tristan Abando, Marichu Baclay and Josie Elli.
Their certificates were mailed from US NRA ServSafe office, Chicago, Illinois.
The certification, valid for five years, attests to their completion of the ServSafe food protection manager course and successful examination last June 30 to July 1.
The program provides up-to-date educational materials to the restaurant industry.
Accredited by the American National Standards Institute Conference for Food Protection, ServSafe training and certification is accepted in all states.
Bryan Ybañez, DOST-CFST team leader, was the first to receive the recognition.
Ybañez had been certified for more than 10 years already. He holds both the ServSafe manager and trainer certification (a higher certification level) as well as instructor and protocol level, which entitles him to teach ServSafe courses.
