The Lancaster Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) will offer a ServSafe Sanitation Program next month that meets the Food Employee Certification requirement of the PA Department of Agriculture.

By July 1, 2004, food establishments in Pennsylvania must employ and have on-site during hours of operation, supervisors who have passed an approved sanitation training course.

HACC will provide classes at its campus at 1641 Old Philadelphia Pike in March and April. The college also can provide customized on-site training at food establishments.

ServSafe is a program that was developed by the Educational Foundation of The National Restaurant Association. The program will review the essentials of good quality food service sanitation.

The course will be offered on four Wednesdays, March 3, 10, 17 and 24 from 5:30-9:30 p.m. It will be repeated on four Mondays, April 12, 19, 26 and May 3 from 5:30-9:30 p.m.

The course will cover food contamination from bacteria, viruses, parasites and other agents. Participants will learn how employees can contaminate food and how to prevent contamination.

The Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) guidelines will be discussed, as well as how they can be used to prevent food borne illnesses. Pest control and accident prevention will be covered, as well as how to develop sanitation in-service programs.
