Very professional staff, efficient, very organized and clean test taking facility. Only problem it takes time to receive the certificate after you pass the test. They'll give you a paper temporary certificate thought.

Pros

Other comments

I highly recommend taking this course in person as opposed to online due to the fact the instructors will mainly focus on what's needed for the test while also making sure you understand the material. Most if not not all instructors were former department of health inspectors so they can also give you advice on working in kitchens and help you study after or before the class session to help you understand the material.

Good school over all, flexible hours to go and take the exam. No limit on how long you can do the training online, which works great when you have to work.

Excellent instructor that assisted the students and gave them a foundation necessary to begin or continue work in the food industry. It is a school setting and has the perfect environment to learn.

Pros

Good teachers

Cons

No breaks, some people don't want to be there and come late.

Other comments

My teacher was awesome and he made the class really fun. The videos we had to watch were for ServSafe and their safety requirements are slightly different from NYC Health Departments. I think it would've been more helpful to have videos where the teacher didn't need to interrupt to make sure we knew what the actually requirements were.

There are 15 sections and in order to move on to the next section you have to pass a test, which help to remember what you've previously studied. Is also advised to take lots if notes.

My instructor was very explicit and descriptive but she made it interesting. The schedule is very flexible, if you miss a class there is 2 other classes, where you can make up your missed class, in that day. It's a 5 day program four days of training and on the last day you take the exam.
