Why get a Food Manager ANSI Certification? Choose your Food Manager State Here

Food establishments generally employ a Person-in-Charge (PIC) or a Food Safety Manager (FSM) that requires certification. These establishments include: bars, restaurants, mobile caterers and food trucks, assisted-living and prison facilities, and day care centers. A Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) is a certification that is obtained by the owner or employee of food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food.

The ANSI Accredited Certified Food Manager Exam is accepted in almost all states and jurisdictions that have mandatory certification requirements for Food Management Professionals. The final exam must be passed with a 70% or higher to get credit for completion of this course.

The ANSI Exam must be proctored by an employee at a 3rd party test center location. Schedule your exam online at a computer testing center near you. (Note: To login to the exam, you will need the username and password sent to you after purchase in the exam enrollment notice email.)
