What Is a ServSafe Proctor?

ServSafe provides information and testing related to safe food and alcohol service for dining and drinking establishments. For those considering becoming an instructor or proctor to assist with the teaching and testing, there are several differences in the roles that should be noted, and you should know that it is possible to become both an instructor and a proctor.

The role of a ServSafe proctor involves several duties, including these:

  • Following the standards and ethics in the ServSafe Examination Administration Handbook
  • Following the standards of the ServSafe Performance Agreement
  • Securing the print and online ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Exam
  • Scheduling the online and print examinations
  • Maintaining exam content confidentiality
  • Maintaining a secure testing environment
  • Knowing when you must excuse yourself due to a conflict of interest

In addition to this, a ServSafe proctor serves as a liaison between the ServSafe offices and its students to ensure that the requirements are met and all conditions are adhered to. This includes verifying the examinee’s ID, monitoring to ensure that no aids are being used during the test, and returning the completed exams (if paper) to ServSafe for scoring.

If the test is being given online, the proctor will also be responsible for ensuring that all of the necessary technology (Internet connection, PC, etc.) is working adequately prior to the start of the test.

Ensuring that food and alcohol are handled and served properly is a vital function that can prevent foodborne illnesses, and ServSafe exam proctors are essential to safeguarding the service industry from unsafe practices. Individuals who would like to become proctors will have to go through several steps to become certified, as outlined by ServSafe.
