“It was a smooth experience that gave great options for the exam. The questions were different if you did a redo of your exam, which I liked a lot. Overall I would recommend and will use the same website/company for my renewal in 2027.”

“Great course, longer than I anticipated. Perhaps you could include estimated time necessary to complete course in your intro. Maybe it was there and I missed it. Otherwise, course was well done.”

“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!”

State Regulations
Food facilities, acceptable by Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and handling, prepping, or serving exposed foods which are potentially hazardous, must hire a certified food manager. The Food Manager Certification should be acquired by successfully passing an accredited, approved exam, such as ServSafe or Always Food Safe.

The Texas Administrative Code Title 25 contains the food safety laws for retail food establishments. And within the laws, Rule §228.33 lists the requirements for certified food protection managers:

At minimum, the establishment must have one employee with management responsibilities and the authority to control food preparation and service who is a certified food protection manager. The original food manager certificate must be posted in a location at the establishment that very visible to customers.

In January of 2010, The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) stopped administering the Certified Food Manager (CFM) exam. Now, the DSHS approves outside providers that you can go through to earn your CFM.

There are two different programs you can choose to get certified: a DSHS-approved exam or an ANSI-CFP exam. The Texas DSHS-Approved one is only good for Texas. On the other hand, the ASI-CFP accredited exam is good anywhere in the United States that accepts this program—which includes the majority of states.
