Certification Courses for New Jersey Food SafetyWhile Food Manager Certification has not been required in the past, recent changes in your state will go into effect in 2010. These changes will require each retail food establishment is required to have at least 1 full time Certified Food Manager. The final rules have not yet been established but we expect that the PSCC Food Manager Certification Course will meet all of the state requirements. We are expecting ? though we can not guarantee- that existing food managers will be grandfathered in as Certified Food Managers in your state so you may want to complete your certification in advance.
The PSCC Food Manager Certification Course has been written to the FDA Food Code and will prepare you to take any of the three exams approved by ANSI and the Conference on Food Protection (CFP). 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 in the State Food Code. Potential students are encouraged to check for any additional local requirements.
