Certified Food Manager course registration begins

ORANGE — The deadline nears for certified food manager requirements.

Orange County Environmental Health and Code Compliance will not issue a food service permit for businesses that do not have a certified food manager by the end of the year. The change in the requirement went into effect in December of 2012, and gave one year for businesses to become compliant with the new regulation.

Three two-day certification courses for Certified Food Manger are available 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sept. 12 and Sept. 19, Oct. 10 and Oct. 17, with a third class scheduled for Nov. 7 and Nov. 14 at the Orange County Convention and Expo Center, 11475 FM 1442 in Orange. The course is $125 which includes the national certification examination, course book and all course material.

Preregistration is required for all classes. The form for registration is available at and must be mailed to the address on the form before the class date. Deadline to register is for the first class is Aug. 26. Deadline for the Oct. class is Sept. 23 and the last day to register for the Nov. course is Oct. 21.

The course is a hands-on food safety class which equips one with the latest in food safety principles and practices.

The certification is good for five years and certifies the individual.
