The Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association offers a one-day training course for obtaining your ServSafe® Managers Certification. Students will be given 90 minutes to complete the exam and need a score of at least 70% to earn a ServSafe® Certificate.
Important Update For OKC ServSafe Classes
Starting in May 2023, OKC ServSafe classes will be located at Valliance Tower, 1601 Northwest Expressway (across from OnCue). Only for the month of May, OKC ServSafe classes will not have the option to re-certify or retest due to a lack of room availability. If you need to re-certify or retest in May please call the ORA office, 405-942-8181, and ask about online testing options. We should be back to offering recertification and retest classes again in June but please check back for updates. To learn more and schedule your ServSafe class, click here.
Is this course Mandatory or Voluntary?
Some counties or municipalities in Oklahoma, specifically one manager or server per restaurant property be a Certified Food Manager (CFM). ServSafe Foodservice Manager is the leading food safety certification course in the nation.
Currently, this is a requirement in the City of Stillwater, Cleveland County, Oklahoma County, and Tulsa County. Check your local municipality for specific requirements.
