Serv Safe Food Protection Management Certification - Union MO


The University of Missouri Extension is holding a class for the ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification exam. ServSafe training and certification is the most widely recognized food safety certification in all jurisdictions.

The cost is $125 to attend and includes the purchase of the ServSafe Food Manager Course book and exam.

Serv Safe Food Protection Manager is a program designed for participants to fulfill requirements for becoming a certified food protection manager under the FDA Food Code.

Per the Center of Disease Control and Prevention, completion of Food Protection Manager training reduces the risk of food-borne illness outbreak for an establishment. Further the presence of a certified manager at a facility has a positive correlation with more effective control of certain risk factors such as poor personal hygiene for all food handling staff. 

The class includes two days of lecture followed with an exam. Both days must be attended. All registered participants will receive a course book and exam. 

How do I pass the exam?

A passing grade of 75% on the exam is required to receive the Food Protection Manager Certification. To achieve the highest opportunity for successful certification, students are encouraged to pick up the provided Serv Safe Food Protection Managers instruction book from the Extension Center and read it prior to class. Additionally, students are recommended to complete the provided pre-test prior to the course day. Completing the pre-test will allow students to identify subjects needing greater review during the course lecture.
