Colorado's adoption of the 2013 FDA Food Code requires retail food establishments to employ at least one Certified Food Protection Manager.

The Larimer County Extension Office is proud to offer Certified Food Protection Manager training in partnership with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment.

Our program includes the NEHA instructor-led training and certification exam.


The full class fee is $175.  This includes your book, class, and proctored exam. During registration, you can register up to 5 people.  You can select that your book is shipped directly to you (for an additional fee) OR you can pick up your books from our office at 1525 Blue Spruce Dr., Fort Collins, CO 80524.  Please note, that classes may require rescheduling if registration is low.  You will be contacted by the instructor if this is the case to discuss options.
