ServSafe, the National Restaurant Association’s premier food safety training brand, expanded its training and certification offerings to include online (remote) proctored exams to better meet the needs of the industry. This addition to the traditional in-person classroom exam option allows foodservice workers to access needed or required testing in the way that works best for their schedules and learning styles. 

ServSafe partnered with ProctorU to create the online solution for testing. Customers choosing this option will be greeted by a live proctor who guides them through the exam launch process. The live proctor, backed by the AI-powered Proctor U platform, monitors and flags any suspicious behaviors during the exam and intervenes, if necessary, to uphold exam integrity and security. This new online solution is available 24/7. To learn more about ServSafe training and certification options, go to
