Food Manager Certification

The Food Manager Certification is required by law in multiple states. California, Arizona, Virginia, Maryland, and Florida, among others, all require that at least one person per establishment holds a valid Food Protection Manager Certificate by an accredited program.

Currently, four nationally accredited exams are accepted by health departments as meeting these certification standards:
ServSafe | Prometric | NRFSP | 360 Training

Premier Food Safety offers the ServSafe and Prometric Food Manager Certification exams, as well as multiple training packages to suit your individual needs.
