Two-day course can lead to certification in food safety operations
KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Corporate College is offering multiple opportunities to take its two-session Certified Professional Food Manager Course in Logansport, Kokomo, Peru, Tipton, Wabash, and Winamac between now and next June. The eight-hour instructor-led training course is designed to lead to the CPFM certification for participants.
Indiana law requires certification of at least one person who oversees the food safety operation within each establishment that handles food. This course will prepare individuals to take and pass the 85-question, multiple-choice certification exam. Participants in this course will study sanitation management, food safety hazards, factors that affect food-borne illness, personal hygiene, the use and calibration of temperature measuring instruments, and many more topics. Upon successful completion, students will be awarded certification and their name will be added to the National Registry of Food Managers. The certification is valid for five years.
The fee for the instructor-led course is $195 and includes the manual, all materials and the certification exam. A self-study option is available for $135 and includes the textbook and test. To register, call 800-459-0561, ext. 233, or email email@example.com .
