January 1, 2018– Iowa law requires in part… Food facilities must have at least one manager/supervisory employee that is a Certified Food Protection Manager. (CFPM) Certification is obtained by passing an ANSI-CFP recognized closed book exam (click for list.) Food handler certificates or cards do not meet the requirement. The grandfathering for existing facilities to obtain certification has ended.
Black Hawk County Health Department uses the National Environmental Health Association’s training materials and can offer 2 of the nationally recognized food safety certification exams. View the Food Safety Class Brochure (PDF) for details or to sign up for a class or other exam options.
More classes may be added throughout the year. If your business would like to schedule a class for multiple attendees, please contact the Health Department 319-291-2413 for further information. The registration deadline is 14 business days prior to the class.
