SERVSAFE CERTIFICATIONS

ServSafe Food Safety

The state of Wisconsin requires licensed foodservice operations to meet certain food safety and sanitation regulations, including having at least one manager or operator certified in food protection practices. Created by the industry for the industry, the National Restaurant Association has developed the ServSafe® Manager program which fulfills state requirements to be a Certified Food Manager.

Our ServSafe Manager reviews help you prepare for the certification exam. Passing an approved exam like ServSafe is required to obtain and renew your Certified Food Manager status. Review courses and materials are also available in other languages. The WRA Education Foundation has trained over 45,000 people since 1993.

SERVSAFE CERTIFICATIONS

Certified Manager Initial Certification and Renewal

The WRA Education Foundation's ServSafe Food Manager Certification program offers a combination of self-study and one-day review with certification exam. Fees include the book in advance for study, review with lunch and proctored exam.

Registration deadlines are 2 weeks prior to the review date.

Effective January 1, 2015, the process for Wisconsin Food Manager’s (CFM) renewal/recertification is the same as initial certification and an exam is required every five years.

Establishments that have five or fewer food handlers across the entire staff may qualify for renewal without exam under Wisconsin Licensure of Food Safety Training for Small Operators. The City of Milwaukee requires examination regardless of staff size.
