There are many different types of food safety training programs out there. One of my favorites is still the ServSafe Essentials program for managers. You can read more at http://www.servsafe.com/FoodSafety/solutions/what/index.aspx
Most states require a 8 or 16 hour course along with a passing grade on the exam. In either case, I have found the ServSafe Essentials, 5th edition text book to be an excellent resource for students. In my view, the main advantage of ServSafe is that it breaks down the most critical features of food safety into manageable chunks. The concepts can then be presented in ways that help your team incorporate food safety methods and practices into daily operations.
Should you have any questions about ServSafe or other food safety programs do not hesitate to contact me.
