Food Protection Manager Certification

Demonstrate the skills and knowledge required of a Food Protection Manager by passing Trust20's ANAB-CFP accredited Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) exam.

Candidates have one attempt to pass Trust20's online, remote-proctored CFPM exam.

Exam Details

Trust20's Food Protection Manager Certification is an online, remote-proctored exam that consists of 80 questions. You have one, 2-hour attempt to pass your exam.

Step 1

Create an Account

Once you purchase a CFPM exam, you will be prompted to register for an account on the testing platform.

Your CFPM exam must be monitored by a proctor on this platform in order to be considered valid.

Step 2

Schedule CFPM Exam + Test Equipment

Once logged in, you can schedule your remotely proctored CFPM exam and test your equipment to ensure it is compatible with the proctoring system requirements.

You should log in to the testing platform prior to the day of your CFPM exam to test that your webcam, microphone, and operating system are compatible with the online proctoring system.

Step 3

Launch CFPM Exam

After scheduling your CFPM exam, you will see a countdown next to the Food Manager CFPM exam title that will let you know when you are able to begin your testing session.

Once the countdown timer reaches “0,” you will see a “Launch Exam” button and must click on it to begin connecting to your remote proctor. You will not be able to access your CFPM exam without first connecting to a proctor who will secure your physical and virtual environments.

Step 4

Take CFPM Exam

There is a two hour time limit on the CFPM exam once you begin. If you do not pass your CFPM exam on the first attempt, you will need to purchase access to a new CFPM exam.

It is a closed-book testing session, and you must show a photo ID to the proctor prior to beginning the CFPM exam.

“I honestly don't believe anything could be improved in my own eyes. The information and materials provided felt sufficient enough to become certified as a Food Protection manager. I truly believe people who are interested in specializing in food safety will enjoy taking this course and will retain information easily due to the interactive nature of the course as well as the visuals.”
