New partnership with ProctorU provides secure, convenient testing.

ProctorU announced today that it has been selected by StateFoodSafety to deliver their ANSI-accredited Food Protection Manager Certification exam. Now, for the first time, persons-in-charge at food establishments can take their Food Protection Manager certification exam at home, rather than having to travel to a testing center.

“The ANSI-CFP accreditation is a greenlight to provide this great certification program nationwide. The convenience it offers the industry is pretty groundbreaking!” said Bryan Chapman, CEO of StateFoodSafety. “ProctorU worked closely with us every step of the way to provide the evidence and support needed to satisfy our accreditation with this innovative and revolutionary new offering.”

StateFoodSafety partnered with ProctorU as the first food safety certification provider to deliver its exams through online proctoring. ProctorU’s Pro service gives test-takers the flexibility of testing anytime, anywhere while still upholding the strict security required by the CFP Standard. This certification communicates to the public food service, retail industry, and the public that individuals in charge at these establishments have the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to oversee the safe storage, preparation, and service of food.

ProctorU Pro can be customized to meet the specific needs of professional testing organizations, and programs like StateFoodSafety appreciate the effectiveness of online proctoring to expedite certifications and expand their reach to test-takers wherever they are located.

“We are thrilled that StateFoodSafety is able to add online proctoring to its certification program without sacrificing its accreditation and high standards for security and control,” said Scott McFarland, ProctorU CEO. “Food Protection Manager test-takers can now test anytime, anywhere and know they are getting a recognized and valued credential.”
