To obtain a National Certified Food Safety Manager License, you must pass a state-approved exam. The TLW class prepares you first, and then administers the exam the same day.
For this course, the option to take the exam online will be available. Bringing your own personal device (smart phone, tablet, laptop) is required in order to take advantage of the online test option.
If the online exam is taken, results will be available immediately after the exam is completed. If you do not bring your own device for the exam, a paper test will be administered.
There will still be the option of a paper test for those who prefer it, or for those unable to utilize the online test option.
For establishments with more than five (5) food handlers you MUST have a licensed-certified Food Manager on staff at each location.
A food handler is any individual engaged in the preparation or processing of food. Examples include: • a chef • a waitress that prepares a salad • a server that scoops ice cream • a bartender that cooks a frozen pizza or drops breaded mushrooms, etc. into a fryer*
Note that if you are renewing your Food Safety Manager License, you are not required to take the class again - only the exam is required.
We encourage you to download the following documents to review prior to the class and for reference thereafter: • Cooking: Time-Temperature Control for Safety Foods (TCS) • Refrigerator Storage Chart • Wisconsin Food Code
