The Texas Food Safety Manager Certification course will cover safety issues, and regulation pertaining specifically to the food industry and will also show you how to reach and maintain a safe environment for not only your food-products, but also how to maintain a safe work environment for your employees and customers.

This course helps the student to understand the reality that proper food handling is not only required by law, but can also increase overall safety and actually lower business expense as well.

Texas law requires that a certified food safety manager be on-site at all times (multiple in some parts of the state). This is to ensure proper care within all food establishments throughout the state of Texas.

By requiring a certified food manager be on site at all times, it becomes much easier to effectively communicate and practice proper safety practices in the workplace.

This course is filled with indispensable information that will last a lifetime. As with any industry, knowing, understanding and practicing safety in the food industry will ensure a smooth, effective and accident-free work environment.

This comprehensive Texas food safety course is fully approved by the Texas Department of State Health Services (formerly TDH) and accepted statewide in Texas!
