Training Programs: Food and Alcohol Certifications

ServSafe Food Management Certification

On August 1, 1997, a new State law was passed mandating that a food preparation business must be certified to sell or serve prepared foods.  SAMA took the initiative to contact city officials to set up workshops that would certify these businesses. The participants were Spanish-speaking business owners, who otherwise would not have the benefit of this training in Spanish. 

To date, SAMA’s Food Licensing Training Program has graduated over 200 participants. Classes are held at SAMA’s Computer Room and is available to Spanish-speaking merchants throughout Connecticut and leads to official certification.  Participants must attend all classes, pay for the exam and pass the exam with a score of 75% or more in order to be certified.
