While your state does not specifically require food manager certification, they do require that, at the time of inspection, the person in charge be able to demonstrate knowledge of the food code in specific areas related to food safety. One option for meeting this requirement is to pass a proctored exam and become a Certified Food Manager. Our course is not required but will prepare you to pass the exam. The exam is not included in this course.
The PSCC Food Manager Certification Course has been written to the FDA Food Code and will prepare you to take any of the four exams approved by ANSI and the Conference on Food Protection (CFP).
NOTE: Additional fees apply for taking your Certified Food Manager exam. The fees for the CFM exam are not included in this course.
Our course is an interactive course, with video, audio, animations, and flash cards to help you learn the material. At the end of the lesson is a quiz, and if you pass the quiz, you move on to the next lesson, if you don't pass, there is not any extra charge, you just go through the lesson again. The class is rated at 8 hours, but if you have experience, or know the material, you can get through the class quickly, but it is fine if it takes you longer, the main thing is that you know the material.
Once you have completed the PSCC Food Manager Certification course, you will be instructed on how you can register to take a proctored food manager exam. The exam is administered by a national organization and the fees for the exam are not included in the course.
Note: Local jurisdictions can, and often do, set requirements that exceed those of the state. Potential students are encouraged to check for any additional local requirements.
