An ANSI accredited Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) certification obtained through a course, such as TAP Series and passing the an ANSI accredited Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) exam is considered certified by all departments of public health except in the city of Chicago. The city of Chicago recognizes the CFPM certification as the State but the city ofChicago requires the manager to apply for the Chicago certificate. The city of Chicago charges a fee for the certificate. Each operation is required to have a certified manager on duty at all times food is being handled. Certified Food Safety Manager must also be certified in allergen awareness.
All non-full certification employees that handle food or food contact surfaces must have a food handler certification (cooks, wait-staff, buss staff and bartenders). If you need a copy of that national certificate, contact the exam company directly for a duplicate.
