Learn2Serve Food Safety Management Principles
This course covers food safety issues, regulations, and techniques to maintain a food-safe environment. It will help you to better understand how handling food correctly is not only the law, but it improves safety and lowers cost as well.
This course is for training purposes and does not result in Food Protection Manager Certification.
To complete that certification, you'll need to pass the Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Certification Exam, or another ANSI-CFP accredited exam. Texas Food Managers may choose either the Texas Food Manager Exam, OR an ANSI-CFP Exam.
Please note that certain areas may require training or additional paperwork or registration (Houston, Chicago, Northern Virginia District, and others). In Ohio, food managers should take the Ohio Level 2 course instead. Please check with your local health department to make sure you are in compliance.
