The Civic Center offers three Food Handler's Classes a year. Any food establishment employee that serves or prepares unpackaged foods or whose job duties require being in food preparation, service, storage or ware washing areas is required to obtain a food handler card every two years from the Health Department. The 2010 dates for the Saraland classes are April 6th, June 15th and August 3th. Two time slots will be offered on each day at 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. It is advisable to arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled food handler class to complete all paperwork. If these dates do not work for you, the Mobile County Health Department offers classes at several other venues throughout the area.
Also offered at the Saraland Civic Center are Adult Education classes. These classes prepare students to take the General Education Development test (GED). The GED is a battery of five tests that when passed stand as equivalent to a high school diploma. Before entrance into a class, all students must first be tested at the Carver Campus of Bishop State Community College, located at 414 Stanton Street in Mobile. Tests are offered on Monday and Thursday mornings at 7:30 a.m. Only 20 people are accepted each morning, so make sure you get there early! After completion of the test, your test results will be sent to the class instructor at your chosen location. The Civic Center offers classes Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. until noon. There is also one evening course offered every Tuesday from 4:00-8:00 p.m.For more information, call the Civic Center at (251) 679-5511, or the Carver Campus at (251) 405-7000.
