To become a certified food protection manager, candidates must pass the DSHS-accredited food protection manager exam. or national ANSI exam. The safety training involves additional expenses, though the pay-off for the employee and employers is surely invaluable in the long-term. The training will not certify you as a food manager. It prepares you for the roles and responsibilities of a Texas Food Manager and enables you to sail through the exam, which does certify you as a Texas Food Manager. Certification is valid for five years.

State laws require that a state licensed Texas Food Manger be present at every restaurant, food cart, school, day care center, or other place that open food is sold or served to the public. It is the legal responsibility of the Food Manager to ensure that the employees of that establishment are serving safe food, and that the conditions of that food service are kept in accordance with the TFER, or Texas Food Establishment Rules.
This is a legally responsible position. Failure to know it could have severe negative consequences.

Food Manager Exam

Preparing for the exam. Please read carefully.

There are 70 questions on the exam. To pass, you must correctly answer 70% of them. The exam will show you how you are doing as you progress through it.

The test is timed. You have one and one half (1 1/2) hour to complete the exam.

Once the exam is begun, you must continue the exam. This must be done in one sitting.

Once the exam is begun, you cannot do anything on your device except continue with the exam. If you open a new browser page, for example, you will instantly fail the exam.

At the beginning, it will ask you several questions such as what your favorite color is. Record your answers to be sure that you remember how you answer them. This is not as silly as it seems. During the exam, you will be asked these questions, and they must be properly answered or you will fail the exam. Their purpose is to attempt to ensure that the person who signed up for the exam is the one who is currently taking the exam.

You will be given two attempts to complete the exam. If you fail the first one, call us before your second attempt for a little coaching.

If you have any questions about the exam, get them answered before beginning the exam.

On the page that the following link opens, scroll down to the bottom and select the $35.00 exam. This is the one that you want, not the other options. The exam is presented by our VAR partner.

Food Manager Responsibilities

To provide a training curriculum known to teach all the essential food manager training and the food manager exam has been implemented by Texas State Law.

The Texas Department of State Health Services, TX DSHS, has been responsible for accrediting food manager training and food manager exam since 1988.

All food enterprises are required by law to have a certified Texas Food Manager present whenever that business is serving unpackaged food to the public. The manager is more than a business and employee manager, they are in a legal position to be responsible for the safe preparation, storage, and holding of the food, as well as the cleanliness of the restaurant and employee hygiene. If a food borne illness outbreak is traced to their restaurant, and you are found to be negligent of your duties, you could find yourself not only unemployed, but in various legal problems.
