South Dakota Food Service Manager Certification - Why do you need it?

  • Food Protection Manager Certification Training is intended to prevent food-borne illness in South Dakota,  by learning food safety procedures to protect the public, other 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 type 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.
  • South Dakota restaurants, bakeries, food trucks, markets, bars, mobile food vendors, and commissaries that prepare or serve non prepackaged food must have an owner or an employee who has passed an accepted examination in food safety.
  • The State of South Dakota 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 or exceeds all South Dakota and National mandates. Local city and county requirements may be in addition to the state’s minimum requirements.
  • Whether you work in the larger cities of Sioux Falls, Rapid City, Aberdeen, Brookings,Watertown
    , or any small town diner, restaurant, bar, food truck, sporting venue, convenience store, or amusement park;  the State of South Dakota requires Food Manager Certification ( or the equivalent knowledge ) and Food Handler Certification.
