It is highly recommended that you study about 3 weeks before attending the class and exam.

The goal of this course is to:

• Protect the public’s health and safety in your food service establishment.
• Understand current food safety policies and procedures.
• Implement effective employee training programs.
• Keep your operation in compliance with all applicable public health regulations.
• Obtain or renew your Managers Food Safety Certification, every 5 years.
