NC Safe Plates Coming in September!
NC Safe Plates is a food safety manager certification course, developed and managed at NC State University and offered by N.C. Cooperative Extension Family & Consumer Sciences Agents for all those who work in the foodservice 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.

The certification exam will be administered on Thursday, September 26 at 9 a.m. This class is only offered two times per year in Montgomery County. The next class will be offered in the Spring of 2020.
