Having a food manager certification allows you to lead your team and make sure that proper food safety measures are being taken in order to protect customers as well as your fellow coworkers.
And it is possible to earn this certification entirely online!
Let’s walk through the steps to help you complete your food protection manager certification online.
Online courses allow you to complete your food manager training on your own time and at your own pace, while remotely proctored exams take away the stress of testing centers and provides greater flexibility on when and where you take it.
Select your state and county to find the food manager training package specifically tailored to your needs and location. Purchase the course or exam separately or select a course and exam bundle. Which one you need will depend on where you are from and your experience level. Some states require food manager training courses, so be sure to check with your local health department.
To access your food protection manager training, set up your account with your training provider.
If you are taking the course, access it online and complete the training videos at your own pace. Otherwise, just book your exam time.
You can schedule an exam time at a traditional testing center, or you also have the option to take the exam online through an online testing provider, such as ProctorU. This gives you more options of when you can take the exam so you can find a time that best fits your schedule.
Once you have completed the exam and passed, you can download and print out your food manager certificate at any time. If you didn’t pass on your first attempt, you will have limited retakes so you can try again and pass.
