Certification Overview

Food Protection Managers Certification is approved by the American National Standards Institute and the Conference for Food Protection (ANSI-CFP). This accredited exam is accepted in all states (nationally) that have mandatory certification requirements for Food Management Professionals.

Many state and local governmental jurisdictions require food safety training and certification for employees within a food service establishment.  In Illinois, Malcolm X College offers the City of Chicago certification - an additional fee is required.  

The Katr2U Food Protection Manager Certification Exam is designed to assess and test foodservice employees on competencies relevant to the prevention of foodborne illnesses,  sanitation, time and temperature control and more. 

The course consists of 6 hours of lecture ( or independent study) and 2 hours of exam testing.

Examinees must complete an 8-hour ( one-day) training course and pass an accredited exam with a minimum score of 75%.

 The certificate will be valid for a maximum period of 5 years.*
