Foodservice professionals can now prep for the CFSP exam at their own pace.
The North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers has developed an on-line Certified Foodservice Professional overview course. Based on the existing 20-chapter textbook, An Introduction to the Foodservice Industry, the course features 14 hours of content.
Foodservice professionals that purchase the module before April 13 will receive a $100 discount, according to a NAFEM release. After April 13, the price will be $595.
"Purchasing the module allows applicants to prepare for the CFSP exam at their own pace, from the comfort of their home or office," comments Deirdre T. Flynn, CFSP, NAFEM's executive vice president. "It is especially beneficial for those individuals who prefer a visual learning experience."
The CFSP exam is the final hurdle to certification and the test is administered manually at a remote location with a proctor or at NAFEM's Chicago headquarters office. Prospects have one year from the time they file a completed CFSP application to take the exam.
