Frequently Asked Questions


What will I learn from this course?

We have launched this online course with permission of the National Restaurant Association and ServSafe.
How long is this course?
This course has 10 sections and is a comprehensive course designed to prepare you to pass your ServSafe Food Manager Exam. It will take a considerable amount of time to complete, and we recommend adding additional study time, if you plan to take your ServSafe Food Manager Exam following this course.
Can I take my exam online?
The ServSafe exam is NEVER offered for certification online. It MUST be proctored by a Registered ServSafe Exam Proctor. If you find an online provider offering an exam, be warned that these are fraudulent. You will not be officially ServSafe Certified without taking a proctored exam following your course of study. Pink Leaf staffs Registered ServSafe Exam Proctors and offers exam proctoring in Ft. Wayne, Muncie and Indianapolis, IN. Visit our website for more information: www.PinkLeafLearning.com
What if I don't pass my exam?
Our Pink Leaf Guarantee is that if you don't pass your ServSafe exam on your first try, we will offer one repeat class online for free.
How long will I have access to this course?
After enrollment, you'll have 90 days to complete your course! You can learn at your own pace and on your own time schedule. If you are taking this course for ServSafe certification exam preparation, we recommend planning to take your course in the few weeks directly before your scheduled exam, so the information is fresh in your mind. You will not be allowed to have notes with you during the exam, so you'll want to treat this course as your test prep study guide. Slides will be able to be printed for independent study, and we also have course options that include the supporting textbooks.
What other courses do you offer?
Funny you should ask! You may have already taken our FREE Foodborne Illness mini-course. We also have plans to launch a bi-lingual (Spanish) mini-course for ServSafe in the coming months. Need other certifications? We specialize in CPR and First Aid, too. Courses coming on that topic in the future! You won't want to miss it!

We are so excited to be able to offer this course for ServSafe certification Food Manager Prep. We know how difficult it can be to find affordable and accessible ServSafe training! We hope you'll enjoy this course and keep us in mind for your all your ServSafe needs.
