WHY WE DON'T HAVE AN EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT?
There are two sides to every resume
- Certifications & Education on one side (we do that)
and Experience (your resume) on the other side.  Employers might be looking for an educated person who they will train.  Or an experienced person they don't need to train as much.  We let the employer decide!
We are partnered with the Foodservice Institute and
the Global Foodservice Institute to offer you four certifications that will help you stand out.
Training is included in the price, whether you use it or not the price is the same.

Note
that a 3% service fee is added for charges.  Payment by check or EFT (direct deposit) saves that fee. 
Bulk Purchases - You can purchase up to 10 tests at a time, for your team.
