NC Safe Plates is a new food safety manager certification course, developed and managed at NC State University and offered by N.C. Cooperative Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Agents for all those who work in the food service industry. This course prepares food service managers to complete a nationally recognized, American National Standards Institute Certified Food Protection Manager certification exam.

NC Safe Plates covers best practices for food safety management in a food establishment according to the 2013 FDA Food Code. The course is grounded in behavior change theory and adult education research. This interactive class encourages participants to engage with the material through case studies, storytelling and discussion.

Safe Plates will be offered at the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension Center, located at 203 West Main Street in Troy on January 22-24, 2018 from 1 to 5 p.m. Attendance for all three days is expected. The certification exam will be administered on Thursday, January 25 at 1 p.m. This class is only offered two times per year in Montgomery County. The next class will not be held until Fall of 2018.

The registration form must be completed and returned along with $130 registration fee by January 8th in order to participate in the class. Forms can be mailed, emailed or dropped off at the office. Registration isn’t complete until the fee is received.
