“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.”

“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.”

FAQs

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.
  • Online Study Guide: A study guide (20+ pages) that covers the major FDA food theories. This study guide also encompasses the Top 10 Tips to Passing the Food Manager Exam and two practice tests. All of these are done online.
  • Food Manager Exam: The test is conducted online via the Always Food Safe Company which is ANSI accredited and recognized by state and county health departments.
