How do I become a Certified Food Protection Manager in Arizona?

If you are interested in getting your food manager certification in Arizona, you need to finish a food manager training course and pass an ANAB-accredited exam. It's easy to meet these requirements with Learn2Serve® by 360training. You'll complete your training online and at your own pace, then register for our ANAB-accredited Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) exam. Begin today!

What are the Arizona food safety regulations?

By Arizona regulation, the person in charge must demonstrate knowledge of foodborne disease prevention. That doesn't necessarily mean earning food protection manager certification, but that is a concrete way to prove you know what's required.

Some jurisdictions mandate certification, though. For example, Maricopa County requires at least one Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) on staff, physically present during operation or available by electronic or telephonic means.

The CFPM Certificate must be administered through an ANAB-Accredited provider like Learn2Serve by 360training.

Check your own county for additional local requirements.

How long is the food manager certification good for?

Your food manager certification is valid for a maximum of five years. You should check your local regulations to see if your jurisdiction has stricter requirements.

Can you take the Arizona food manager exam online?

Yes, your exam will be administered through our online proctor service. The Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Certification Exam is accredited by the American National Standards Institute and the Conference for Food Protection (ANAB-CFP).

Learn more about the policies and procedures required to successfully complete our online proctored exam.

Who should get their food manager certification?

Arizona doesn’t have specific requirements for which person needs a certification aside from someone "in charge." For most businesses, it's an owner, manager, and/or head chef.

Many food service establishments like restaurants and retail stores require certification for all their chefs and managers, to cover their bases.

What does a food manager do and how can they improve food safety?

Food managers control many different areas of a business, from human resources and team management to customer service to operations.

Their food safety duties are ingrained throughout all parts of their job. They have to:

  • Know applicable food regulations and guarantee their business's compliance
  • Maintain records of a valid food worker card for each employee where required
  • Create and enforce food safety policies, procedures, and protocols
  • Ensure food safety data is accurately kept
  • Confirm that food sources and their deliveries meet safety standards
  • And more

Due to the level of accountability, food managers earn a significantly higher salary than servers and other food employees. According to wage data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, here is the average amount of money you can expect to make in senior management positions in food service:

Job Title Average Hourly Wage Average Yearly Wage
Food Service Manage $28.19 $58,640
Chef $20.79 $43,240

Arizona-approved food safety manager certification is an important qualification for getting one of these jobs.

Why are food managers in Arizona required to get ANAB certification?

Foodborne illness is a real danger in every state, including Arizona. According to data from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, over a 10-year period (2003-2012), there were a total of 240 foodborne illness outbreaks. And the two most common pathogen found were Norovirus and Salmonella—both preventable with the right food safety protocols in place.

As the hub of food safety policy, food service managers are perfectly positioned to stop foodborne illnesses from impacting customers and employees. Earning ANAB-CFP certification is a great way to ensure they're qualified to fulfill that role.

ANAB-accredited certification programs meet the highest standards in food safety. The ANAB CFPM program has been endorsed by authorities like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
