The 12 Tribes Resort Casino is the site of a ServSafe class Aug. 14.

OMAK – A ServSafe training for restaurant managers, cooks and anyone who has responsibility for food preparation and food safety will be offered next week at two Colville tribal casinos.

Casinos, day cares, senior centers, food counters, vendors, hospitals, restaurants and correction facilities are among the target audience, said Washington State University Extension, which is offering the training.

The training will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 14 at 12 Tribes Resort Casino, 28968 Highway 97, and during the same hours Aug. 15 at Mill Bay Casino, 455 Wapato Lake Road, Manson.

Class time includes testing.

ServSafe is a nationally recognized, comprehensive food safety training and certification program for anyone involved in the food service industry. It includes the latest updates in food safety and best practices used in the industry to implement critical food safety procedures.

“It is the highest standard in food safety training and certification to help managers keep food safe and protect the public from foodborne illness,” said Margaret A. Viebrock, WSU Extension and ServSafe instructor.

A fee will be charged. A textbook is included.

Those who complete the course successfully will receive a five-year certificate.

Class size is limited. Registration information is available at 509-745-8531.
