MONTVILLE, NJ – Montville Township Health Department announces it will be holding a ServSafe© Food Protection Manager certification class.

The two-session class certifies participants as food protection managers.

A certified food protection manager (CFPM) is responsible for monitoring and managing retail food establishment operations to ensure that the facility is operating safely and in compliance with regulations. Most retail food establishments that prepare and serve food must have at least one certified food protection manager on their staff. As a courtesy to local retail food establishments, the Montville Township Health Department is sponsoring this CFPM course in a convenient location and at a reduced rate.
