Food Safety Training Requirements

Certified Food Program Manager Certification Online Training & Exam

  • This online option satisfies the Certified Food Protection Manager requirement.

Food Handler Training

  • Great entry level training for food handlers. Colorado Food Code doesn’t require food handlers complete a food safety course, but we highly recommend having all staff take this level of training.

Food Safety training (offered in English or Spanish) can be scheduled at your facility. An inspector will come to your restaurant and provide a training for your team. Class normally last between 2 to 2.5 hours. Class attendees will receive a food handlers training card. There is a $300 fee for the class.

This class is not accredited and does not count toward the required Certified Food Program Manager Certification. This is the basics of Food Safety.
