"We developed the Spanish version of Daydots University in response to customer demand and to service the large population of Spanish speaking employees," said Paul McGinnis, vice president of marketing for Daydots. "We view this as a valuable enhancement to our existing program."
The Spanish version contains the same 24 short, food safety training modules as the English version and was translated by a professional translator to ensure all food safety terms were used correctly. The interactive training course is comprised of four levels, freshman through senior, with six courses at each level. At the end of each level, students take a comprehensive exam and upon completion of the entire curriculum receive a diploma. Currently, more than 65 companies are using the English version of the program.
The information on the online course is based on the FDA Model Food Code and also serves as a refresher for previously-trained employees, supplementing accredited food safety programs such as ServSafe, offered by the National Restaurant Association's Educational Foundation (NRAEF), Chicago.
