What is a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM)?

All food establishments in Englewood must have a CFPM on-site during hours of operation. Individuals who wish to become a CFPM must pass a food safety certification exam that has been approved by the Conference for Food Protection (CFP) that addresses the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to operate a safe and sanitary food establishment. Exams are available in English, Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, French, Italian, and Arabic.

Currently, the three CFP-approved food safety programs are as follows:

Upon passing the food safety certification exam, CFPMs are issued a certificate that must be displayed inside the restaurant or other pertinent retail food establishment where it is available and accessible to the consumers and Public Health Inspectors upon review/inspection. The Food Protection Manager Certificate must be maintained and renewed upon expiration every five years.
