NC Safe Plates for Food Service Managers

— Written By

NC Safe Plates is a new Food Safety Manager Certification Course developed by NC State University and an alternative to ServSafe. This course will prepare food service managers to complete the Food Safety Manager Certification Examination. Food service managers successfully completing the exam will meet the 2013 FDA Food Code requirement to be designated as an ANSI (American National Standards Institution) approved Certified Food Protection Manager. Managers will also receive a certificate to display in their operation which will verify with local Environmental Health Departments that they are in compliance.

Durham County Cooperative Extension Service will offer a three day NC Safe Plates course from Tuesday-Thursday, May 23-25, 2017. The exam will be administered on Wednesday, May 31. Time: 9 am until 3 pm, May 23-25; 9:00 am–11:30 on exam day, May 31.
