California Food Safety Training Requirements

Certified Food Manager
California requires that a person-in-charge, an owner, or employee of a food establishment - (i.e., restaurants, markets, bakeries, bars, food trucks, commissaries, and food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve non-prepackaged potentially hazardous food) be a Certified Food Manager (CFM) or demonstrate knowledge of food safety as outlined in the FDA Food Code by successfully passing an accredited ANSI food safety certification exam.

Under the California Health and Safety Code §113947, all food facilities that prepare, handle, or serve unpackaged foods are required to have at least one Certified Food Manager (CFM) or Person in Charge, either an owner or an employee, who has successfully passed an approved and accredited food safety certification examination. This includes restaurants, most markets, caterers, ice cream/yogurt shops, delicatessens, bed and breakfasts, school cafeterias, mobile food facilities (e.g., hot dog carts and espresso carts), and some bars.

The certification exam must be proctored by you at a 3rd party test center location.
