ServSafe Food Protection Manager

ServSafe is a nationally recognized program developed by the National Restaurant Association as a comprehensive course on food safety.  The Food Protection Manager course is ideal for retail food establishment managers who are not currently certified by an accredited food safety course.  The Colorado Retail Food Establishment Rules and Regulations state that a Certified Food Protection Manager needs to be on hand and exerting active managerial control at all times.  Participants of this course who score 75% or above on the exam become Certified Food Protection Managers, as required by the Colorado regulations. The course teaches participants to implement food safety practices, like controlling time and temperature, preventing cross-contamination, practicing personal hygiene, purchasing from reputable suppliers, and cleaning & sanitizing.  It will also leave managers more prepared to implement policies to ensure their staff follow food safety practices at all times.
