Food Safety Manager Certification

Food Safety Manager Certification

Woman serving food in a restaurantRecent changes in the food code has made it a requirement for establishments that serve or prepare food to have a "certified food production manager" on staff. In addition to the food manager, they must also have a designated "person in charge" present at all times during operations. This "person in charge" needs to be trained to the same standards found in the food production managers course. The Food Safety Management Certification is mandatory for all restaurants and food preparation services as of April 01, 2019.

We offer the accredited and approved ServSafe® "Food Managers" course and exam. The one-day course teaches the material and provides the exam required that would satisfy designation as either person in charge or food production manager. Class is designed for businesses such as restaurants, bars, food trucks, hotels, cafeterias, and all other permitted food establishments. 

Registration includes access to a study guide and a practice test. On the day of the class student are provided books for use during the course and a certification exam at the end of class.  Study and test materials are available in both English and Spanish.
