Food Safety Manager Certification

see also Foodhandler Classes


Current [2016] regulations require most food service establishments to have a Certified Food Safety Manager on premises at all times of operations; this manager is required to have training from a recognized food safety manager course and must obtain a Certified Food Safety Manager’s Card from the Health Department.


Currently, the food manager certifications accredited by ANSI are:

Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Certification Program (360training.com)
AboveTraining/StateFoodSafety.com Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) Exam
National Registry of Food Safety Professionals Food Protection Manager Certification Program
ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Program (National Restaurant Association)
Prometric Inc. Food Protection Manager Certification Program

ServSafe is a recognized Food Safety Managers course offered at the Health Department every other month.

A Certified Food Safety Manager Application may be downloaded, printed and completed, but must be brought to the health Department to be processed. Payment is due at registration; the book will be received at that time. Books are available in English, Spanish, Chinese & Korean.
