For those with oversight and management responsibility in any type of foodservice operation, ServSafe® is the food safety certification course developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation. It is one of several programs accredited by the American National Standards Institute - Conference on Food Protection in meeting Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) requirements. The ServSafe® program blends the latest FDA Food Code and food safety research in a program offered by specialists with years of food sanitation training experience. Participants learn current best practices related to safe food handling and cleaning and sanitizing as well as tips on how to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety.The 8-hour course includes a resource workbook and concludes with a certification exam.

As of January 1, 2014, the Iowa Food Code requires at least one employee in a food establishment who has supervisory and management responsibility and authority to direct and control food preparation and service be a CFPM. A CFPM is a person who has shown proficiency by passing a test which is part of an accredited program. The ServSafe® program is a well-known program that meets this certification requirement. ServSafe® certificates are valid for five years.
