Certified Food Manager Class
This class meets all the requirements of Michigan’s Food Code for a certified manager in food service facilities. Michigan’s Food Code and Calhoun County’s Ordinance requires licensed food service establishments to have at least one certified manager on-site during operation. To gain certification, a manager must successfully complete a nationally accredited exam.
The requirement for a certified manager is intended to protect the public’s health by greatly reducing the risk of foodborne illness. One of the major causes of food-related illness is food service workers’ limited knowledge. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 76 million people in the U.S. each year are sickened by foodborne illness. Much of this can be prevented by providing education to food service workers.
The Certified Manager Class is appropriate for individuals who directly supervise food service employees in the day-to-day operation or who develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)- based recipes for food service operation. The eight-hour class runs from 8 am - 5 pm (lunch from 12 pm – 1 pm on your own).
Classes are held at the Health Department located in the Toeller Building, 190 E. Michigan Avenue, Battle Creek. The Certified Manager Class fee is $105.00 non-refundable. You may purchase a text book for $35 from our office. CCPHD will mail it to you for an
additional $10 shipping & handling fee.
Early registration is recommended. You must provide identification, e.g., a driver’s license, state issued ID, student ID. If you are unable to attend and would like to transfer your registration to another class date, a 48-hour notice must be given to CCPHD to transfer.
Upon successful completion of the class, a certificate provided by Prometric will be sent to you and is valid in all 50 states for five years.
Participation in a Certified Manager Class provides a great opportunity to increase facility efficiency, minimize the possibility of foodborne illness, and meet the requirements of Michigan’s Food Law.
