The Certified Food Protection Manager Course is a one day course for Class II, III and IV Food Establishments as required by the Connecticut Public Health Code, 2017 FDA Model Food Code. Please note, Class II establishments have until January 1, 2019 to attain CFPM Certification. CFPM Certification is valid for five years.

The CFPM course incorporates all of the information taught in the FAST class, but in much greater detail. You will learn the standards in food safety, foodborne diseases, and food service sanitation. The exam, given at the end of the class, certifies you as a Food Protection Manager, which fulfills the CT Public Health Code requirement.
