“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.”

“Lessons were clearly given, test had good questions. But I can't print my certificate or card. Neither are updated with my name or completion date. I can't get ahold of anyone to assist me! Other than that, I would suggest to someone else.”

FAQs

You must have completed eight hours of training from an approved and accredited food protection manager certification training program and then take an accredited exam, for example ServSafe or Prometric.

Mississippi requires eight hours of training before you can take the exam. Training may be taken online or in person.

Completing the eight hours of training and successfully completing one of the approved exams is all that is required in order to receive a Food Manager Certificate in Mississippi.

Your Food Manager Certificate expires after 5 years from the date of issuance. The date of issuance should be listed on your certificate.

To renew your certificate, you will have to complete the training and take the certification exam again.

A food facility is described as an operation that stores, prepares, packages, serves, vends or provides food for consumption for a price. This includes any establishment that is held in a mobile, stationary, temporary or permanent establishment or location, where consumption is on or outside of the premises.

Yes. The Mississippi State Department of Health will not grant a permit for a food facility until a certified manager is employed.

No, they cannot, because the law requires one Certified Food Manager for each food facility to be present during every hour of operation.
