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 establishments with more than five (5) food handlers you MUST have a licensed-certified Food Manager on staff at each location.
For this course, the exam will be fully online. Bringing your own personal device (smart phone, tablet, laptop) is required in order to take the exam.
When 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 very limited number may be available on loan from the proctor. If they are taken, you will be unable to take the exam.
A food handler is any individual engaged in the preparation or processing of food.
• 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:
