Attention food operation owners, kitchen managers and food handler supervisors! This one day class prepares you to take the examination needed to certify or recertify you as a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM). This certification requirement is mandated by California State law for all retail food operations (restaurants, cafes, markets, mobile carts, caterers, etc.) and is enforced by local health departments. A CFPM is a certificate that is to be obtained by the owner or employee of food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food. There shall be at least one CFPM person at each food facility. El Camino College (this course, the instructor/proctor, etc.) is on Los Angeles County Health Department's list of approved trainers and certification providers. The certification is accepted by all health departments in California and nearly all jurisdictions across the United States.   Important:  Pre-registration required!  Walk-in registration is not available for this class.   Exam/Materials Fee: Students will sit for the exam during the last two hours of class.  The $31 materials fee covers the cost of the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals (nationally accredited, third party certifying organization) exam and will be collected by El Camino College upon registration along with the course fee.   Pre-class preparation: Students are expected to familiarize themselves with food protection concepts prior to attending class. Numerous sources of food protection information are available to help you prepare for the exam. Students may also utilize an online refresher training module and study manual developed specifically for this course. The training link and manual are to be requested directly from instructor Gevork Kazanchyan by emailing him at gev.kaz@gmail.com. All other class related matters should be directed to the Community Education office: Call 310-660-6460   Food Handler Card (CFH Card)   A Food Handler Card (CFH Card) is a certificate that is required by all food employees who are involved in the preparation, storage, or service of food in a food facility.
