Free COVID-19 Safety Training for Georgia Restaurants

The Georgia Restaurant Association (GRA), working with Atlanta-based digital learning company MLevel, is offering THRIVE Georgia – a training program that allows businesses with up to 500 employees in the Georgia restaurant sector to educate their employees virtually on the latest state regulations to ensure they are compliant and safe. THRIVE Georgia courses cover dining room configuration and layout; employee safety; and environmental safety and sanitation, ensuring employees understand what is expected of them and to keep themselves and their colleagues safe. 

For 10 weeks, restaurants will have access to complimentary training, developed in collaboration with various restaurant and legal partners, and the powerful analytics on the MLevel platform. The goal of the training is to quickly achieve content mastery and for everyone in the restaurant to feel better prepared to get back to business. Updates to content will be made in real-time as Georgia regulations evolve with the nature of the pandemic.

“Safety is and has always been our industry’s number one priority. It is a critical time for restaurants to do everything they can to elevate customer confidence, including employee education,” said GRA CEO Karen Bremer. “The THRIVE Georgia COVID-19 mitigation training program perfectly aligns with Governor Kemp’s latest executive order, and will continue to be updated as regulations change. This is an opportunity I hope every restaurant in Georgia takes advantage of.”

To apply, businesses simply need to visit the THRIVE Georgia website and fill out the waiver and information form. Once submitted, applicants will receive their login credentials within two business days from the MLevel team. Upon competition, restaurants will receive a THRIVE Georgia certificate to display in the restaurant.

“We are excited to be able to partner with the Georgia Restaurant Association and help our fellow small business owners reopen. We want to provide confidence to our fellow community members in Georgia so they can return to enjoying the pleasure of eating out and support our local businesses,” said MLevel CEO Jordan Fladell.
