This is the perfect course for anyone who works in nutrition and food service!
This course is only available as a “CPE Additional Certificate”. There is no hard copy book – the link to the 2017 Federal Food Code is included in the course document.
This course is based on the 2017 Food Code published by the US Public Health Service of the US Food and Drug Administration (USDA). Updated every 4 years, the Food Code provides guidance to food handling establishments on best practices to assure safe food handling. The provisions of the Food Code provide a system of prevention and overlapping safeguards designed to minimize foodborne illness; ensure employee health, industry manager knowledge, safe food, nontoxic and cleanable equipment, and acceptable levels of sanitation on food establishment premises; and promote fair dealings with the consumer.
Nutrition care professionals who interact with commercial and/or health care food service operations need to have a working knowledge of the Food Code and how it affects operations. Participants who take this course will demonstrate an understanding of the content of the Food Code using case studies that help apply the knowledge learned.
