Application Process

Before you can get your Certified Food Safety Manager card you must get certified as a food protection manager through a program accredited by ANSI.

The cost for certification varies and is separate from the cost of the card.

The health district will accept manager level certificates from the following Food Safety Manager or Food Protection Manager programs:

  • ServSafe
  • Prometric
  • National Registry of Food Safety Professionals
  • Learn2Serve
  • AboveTraining/StateFoodSafety.com

You must complete an application to get a new, renewal or duplicate card when you visit one of our six public health centers.
