PSCC's Certified Professional Food Manager (CPFM) training is an excellent resource to become a Certified Food Manager in South Dakota. This covers anything from the effect of personal hygiene on foodborne illnesses to the symptoms of foodborne illnesses.
- What are your responsibilities as a manager if your employee has a foodborne illness?
- How do cooking time and temperature of food affect foodborne illnesses?
- What are the hazards to storing, cooking, serving, and cooling certain foods?
â€¢ Schedule the proctored exam (at your convenience), which takes about 1 hour. Proctored exam has extra fees, which are paid to the Proctor. South Dakota state requirements allow online training, but the exam must be in person, with an approved proctor.
ALL Food handlers must be able to demostrate knowledge (per South Dakota statutes). There must be at least one food handler (or a CFM) on staff during all business hours. Food handler knowledge must include:

â€¢ The minimum cooking temperature for pork, beef or other potentially hazardous foods
â€¢ How long these different foods have to be at that temperature before they are safe to eat
