“Courses were established efficiently! They went to the smallest detail, it took about 3 days to finish (depends if your a note taker).Great! Will get again perhaps maybe get a card next!!!”
“Great content! Provides detailed information and tests your knowledge at the end of each chapter. This is a great learning tool. After taking the online course I am certain that I will properly handle food and prevent customers from illnesses. I recommend this course to anyone that handles food to serve others. I also recommend the course for people who prepare food at home for themselves and loved ones. There is so much I didn't know about bacteria, cross contamination, and the proper way to cool and store food. I can't thank you enough. You have helped me save my family from getting sick off of the food I prepared with LOVE!”
“I took my test in the middle of the night because I had forgotten to take it that morning. The test was a breeze. The lessons you learn (a nice refresher) are direct, straight forward and made to be easily learned. Thank you for the opportunity to review.”
“There were a few glitches in the test, most notably partway through section 7. It froze a bunch of times. The same thing happened when taking the final exam: it kept crashing around question 9 and jumping me back to the beginning. You may want to check for bugs. Otherwise, thorough and easy to understand test. Covered a lot!”
“Good information learned some new things and also just a refresher on things that I already knew they only reason I give it a four is that it was kind of long. Just sit down take the time I'm sure it wouldn't have seemed as long if I didn't have a busy schedule so to me it seems long. Either way I do appreciate the company and I do like that they talk through the whole thing it'd be really grueling if I had to read everything so the presentation is not bad.”
MISSISSIPPI FOOD HANDLER REQUIREMENTS
Food establishments in Mississippi must have at least one owner or supervisory employee become a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM). The Mississippi State Department of Health may choose to exempt some food service establishments if they find them to pose a minimal risk of foodborne illness. We always recommend checking with your local health department for any additional certification and training requirements.
|Approved Certification Exams
Always Food Safe
|Food Safety Training Requirement
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.
