The City College of New York Continuing and Professional Studies (CCNY-CPS) announces that spring semester registration is now open for the National Restaurant Association Foodservice Management Professional (FMP) Certification Program. CCNY-CPS also offers Food Safety Manager and Alcohol Training Certification Programs.

The FMP certification program is designed to teach the highest level of professional competencies in the foodservice industry. The ServSafe® FMP program provides food safety training, exams and educational materials to foodservice managers. All courses are taught by National Restaurant Association certified instructors. Upon completion of the certification, job placement assistance can be obtained through NYC Business Solutions.

The program consists of seven required core courses in Hospitality and Restaurant Management, Controlling Food Costs, Human Resources Management and Supervision and the ServSafe® Food Safety Manager Certificate class, which prepares students to take the New York City Health Department food handler’s test. Food safety certification is required for any individual who handles food in a commercial establishment.

In addition, students select one of three two-course elective sequences: Hospitality and Restaurant Marketing, Hospitality and Restaurant Management or Bar Management. Additional information about the program, including class schedules and fees is available on the CCNY-CPS website.

The ServSafe® Food Safety Manager and Bar Management courses are also offered as standalone certification programs. The Food Safety program meets New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets educational certificate requirements.
