Do you have a CFSM?

With very few exceptions, each food service establishment is required to have a certified food safety manager (CFSM) that is actively engaged in overseeing the application of safe food handling and operations in their respective facility. Food safety exams accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) meet the CFSM requirements of the Georgia Food Service Rules and Regulations Chapter 511-6-1.  The following providers are ANSI accredited: ServSafe, National Registry of Food Safety Professionals, Prometric, Learn2Serve and State Food Safety (the most recently accredited provider)

Cobb & Douglas Public Health offers the ServSafe course.  Registration has closed for Cobb’s July course, however, registration is still being accepted for the Douglas class scheduled for August 29-30.  Registration forms and links to other CFSM providers are found on our website at  http://www.cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com/environmental-health/food-services/food-safety-training/ .
