They also acquire industry certifications including First Aid/CPR, Food Safety, Serve It Right, STEC Customer Service, Mental Health First Aid, and more.

The 2020 program runs from Sept. 14 to Dec. 4. Classes are scheduled Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Parkland College Main Campus in Yorkton.
