Texas Food Service Manager Training Course and Certification Exam - Why it is so important for public safety that you get certified

Food Service Manager Training and certification are intended to prevent food-borne illness by learning food safety procedures to protect the public, food workers, and your business.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets some form of food-borne illness. Of these, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die from food-borne disease. Many of these illnesses were acquired in food establishments.

The State of Texas mandates that a Person in Charge (PIC) of a food business show knowledge of food safety as written in the FDA Food Code. By taking an approved Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) Training Course and passing an ANSI-Accredited Exam is one way to show that knowledge.

The Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Exam offered on this website meets all Texas requirements and is valid statewide. Your local county or city requirements may be in addition to the state’s minimum food manager certification online exam requirements.

Whether you work in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Ft. Worth, Austin, El Paso, and yes even little ole Luckenbach Texas, businesses such as restaurants, bars, food trucks, sporting venues, convenience stores and others, require Food Manager Certification or Food Handler Certification. 

Venues that sell prepackaged food generally do not require food manager or food handler training.
