Alabama requires each retail food establishment to have a person-in-charge, an owner, or manager of a food establishment be a Certified Food Manager (CFM) as outlined in the FDA Food Code by successfully passing an accredited ANSI food safety certification exam.
ANSI-CFP Food Manager Certification Exam Programs
Because foodborne illness and outbreaks can occur so easily, food manager certification is required by law in many states. That means that employees may not handle food without operation operating without a certified food manager.
Food Protection Manager Certification is mandatory or a condition of the PIC (Person In Charge) rule in most states that have adopted the 2005 - 2017 food code, including California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and Maryland. To achieve Food Protection Manager Certification the PIC (Person In Charge) must complete one of the ANSI/CFP approved examination (80 - 90 questions) with a minimum score of 75% and above. Food Protection Manager Certification is valid for 5 years. However, this may vary, depending on your local health jurisdiction.
