Published in CSP Daily News

FORT WORTH,Texas -- Daydots, a manufacturer and distributor of food-safety products and services, announced that Daydots University, an online training course that provides the foodservice industry with a cost-effective method for training employees at all levels on the basics of food safety, is now available in Spanish.

"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 [image-nocss] 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 Daydots University 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 Daydots University.

Daydots University serves as a cost-effective online tool for managers and employees to learn about food safety, as well as how to implement or improve a food-safety 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.

Based in Fort Worth, Texas, with distribution operations in the United States, Europe, Australia and Asia, Daydots is a manufacturer and distributor of food-safety solutions. With the goal of "making the world a safer place to eat," Daydots offers more than 4,500 products and services, including its original day-of-the-week food-safety labels.
