Safe Plates Course Offered TWICE January – March, 2020

— Written By

N.C. Cooperative Extension offers NC Safe Plates for all those who work in the foodservice industry. The course helps food establishments meet the NC requirement of having at least one supervisor certified as a food protection manager, per the FDA Food Code 2013. NC Safe Plates is taught through case studies, activities, and discussion. This class is interactive and encourages participants to engage with the material.

This course is designed for food employees who are seeking food protection manager certification. Certification is based on passing the ANSI-approved exam from the National Registry for Food Safety Professionals. Certification is accepted throughout the US for 5 years from date of exam, and includes a certificate to be displayed in the workplace as well as a wallet card.
