The cost of the course is $150, which includes eight hours class time, a manual and the national certification exam. Anyone interested in preparing and serving safe food is welcome to attend. The course is required currently by some companies including restaurants, hospitals, schools, nursing homes and assisted living facilities.

Starting in January, all new food-service operations will be required to have a certified staff person.
