“Class was great, however the Certificate would not download. Checked my computer settings and they appeared to be fine. It would be great if our certificates were emailed, as I ended up taking another food safety class, not near as detailed, just to get a certificate emailed.”
“The course content was thorough and clear, the modules were easy yo navigate through, and the cost was very affordable. Thank you for making my licensing needs so easy to obtain.”
“This test is improved from earlier ones. The info section could be shortened, but maybe because not much has changed in the time I’ve been taking these tests. The final was quick.”
“Was super easy to use. Some slide sounds were on the wrong page but it was still easy and helpful.”

MASSACHUSETTS FOOD HANDLER REQUIREMENTS
Every food facility must have at least one person on site who is in charge and is a certified food protection manager through successfully passing a food safety certification exam from an accredited program, such as ServSafe or Prometric.
|Approved Certification Exams|
Always Food Safe
|Food Safety Training Requirement|
A Person-In-Charge (PIC) becomes a certified food protection manager by successfully completing an accredited and approved exam from Prometric or ServSafe. Once they have passed one of the accredited exams, the PIC will acquire a certificate and will be considered in compliance with the requirement. Training is not a Massachusetts requirement, however, it is highly recommended.
All food facilities must have a certified food protection manager except the following:
- Temporary food facilities operated by non-profit organizations
- Daycare operations that prepare and/or serve snacks only
- Food facilities that sell only pre-packaged food items
- Food facilities with limited preparation of food that is not potentially hazardous
- Food facilities that prepare and serve USDA meat and poultry products containing 120 PPM nitrite and 3.5% brine concentration, for example, hotdogs.
- Satellite feeding locations receiving already prepared meals from commissaries for immediate service.
No, they do not, however, when the PIC is not present during operating hours, an alternate PIC must be designated. The alternate PIC does not have to have certification, but this individual must be knowledgeable in food safety, food-borne illness prevention, and corrective actions. This individual should be at least eighteen years of age and is a full-time position equal to an on-site manager or supervisor.
Training is not required in Massachusetts but is highly recommended.
- Online Food Manager Training: A self-paced training that is online and incorporates different learning experiences such as graphics, audio, and cooperative learning exercises. This is a very effective learning program.
