CFSP Program Changes, New Overview Seminar Announced

The Certified Food Service Professional program has a newly streamlined application and updating process. First, the point-earning/recording requirements have been simplified and the North American Food Equipment Manufacturers Association no longer differentiates between advancement and maintenance points. Certification is maintained by paying $50 dues every two years and by earning at least one point per year. Level advancement is made by earning the required number of points.

In addition, a newly unveiled CFSP Product Package includes the application fee, textbook, overview seminar and exam. A full list of pricing and other frequently asked questions is available at www.nafem.org or by contacting Vonceil Roberts, program coordinator, member services, at 312/821-0216 or at robertsv@nafem.org.

Also new is an annual overview seminar at NAFEM’s Chicago headquarters office in August. The Equipment & Supplies Overview Seminar is scheduled Wednesday, Aug. 10, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Attendees can follow it up with the exam in NAFEM’s offices on Aug. 11 or 12. Sign up at NAFEM’s website.
