PALESTINE, Texas (March 20, 2017) – The City of Palestine, in conjunction with the Northeast Texas Public Health District, will host class for basic food workers.
According to state law, food employees are required to have a certificate of completion of this course. Food establishments are required to maintain those certificates.
“This is a great opportunity for local food workers,” Rickey Dorsey, Assistant Director of Community Services, said. “The class will help all our local food workers meet the state requirements.”
The classes will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Palestine Civic Center, 1819 W. Spring St. Instructors with the Northeast Texas Public Health District, Net Health, will be leading the class.
Preregistration for the class can be made in person at City Hall, 504 N. Queen St., between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is encouraged. Registration will be available at the door, but students must arrive 30 minutes early.
The cost is $20 per person and only cash, check or money orders will be accepted. No credit cards. Checks and money orders should be made payable to Net Health.
Classes begin promptly, and late arrivals will not be admitted into the class. If a student is unable to attend the class, an alternate student may be substituted. If a student is absent from the class and fails to send an alternate, the student will be required to re-register and pay for a later class.
