Food Safety Manager Certification and Training


The USPCA has partnered with National Registry of Food Safety Professionals to provide an easy and affordable method to attain food safety credentials, both food manager certification and food handler certificate. All National Registry programs are nationally accredited and National Registry is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Restaurant Association.

Holding a valid food manager certification is not an operating requirement for the majority of personal chef businesses operating out of a client’s home but it is a requirement for USPCA certification and desirable for membership. However, members must have proof of successful completion of a food handler certificate course. Having the credentials and demonstrating a core understanding of food safety knowledge are important and sends a clear message of commitment to your clients.

USPCA members get access to discounted training and exams. Access to taking the food manager certification program is available on the Members Only portal after joining however food handler training is available to members and non-members.

Food Handler Training Certificate Program – $12.95

The online Food Handler Training certificate program provides Personal Chefs with the knowledge they need to safely handle food. The Food Handler Training course and assessment is based on the current state of food safety knowledge, regulations, and requirements and is recommended for people involved in the preparation, handling, serving and displaying of food. It is available to both members and non-members.
