Welcome to Dietary Service Supervisor

The Dietary Service Supervisor (DSS) Certificate Program prepares students to manage an efficient, safe, and healthful food service. Students acquire skills for supervising both food production and employees in extended care settings, hospitals, retirement communities, school food, and other large food service organizations. Both classroom instruction and hands-on experience with local food services are included in the curriculum. The DSS certificate is the minimum requirement set by the California Department of Public Health for managing food service departments in a health care facility.
