Texas Certified Food Manager CFM Class and Food Handlers Class

Welcome to FoodSafety.tamu.edu – home of the Certified Professional Food Manager Training Program (CFM) and the Food Handlers Course taught by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

On this website you will find course information, cost, dates and locations.

Why should you take a CFM or Food Handlers course? Because a recent study shows managers and workers who had been certified in food safety were more likely to pass a food safety knowledge test than those who were not certified. Additionally, managers and workers whose primary language was English were more likely to pass a knowledge test than those whose primary language was not English. Other factors linked with passing the knowledge test included working in a chain restaurant, working in a larger restaurant, having more job-related experience, and having more job duties.
