3 Things to Know About the SafeMark and Prometric Partnership

By: Gwen Lee, Senior Manager, Food Safety Programs, Food Marketing Institute

Prometric TestAccording to U.S. Grocery Shopper Trends 2016, nine out of 10 shoppers say they trust their grocery stores to sell safe food. Maintaining a shopper’s trust continues to be on the forefront of retailers’ mind, which is why it’s important to have food safety resources available.

In June 2016, FMI announced its five-year partnership with Prometric, a global leader in test development and delivery, to bring the Certified Food Protection Manager exam under the FMI SafeMark® program to FMI members and SafeMark® users. The SafeMark program is focused on training grocery managers, supervisors and front-line employees for the nationally accredited Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) exam. Beginning October 1, the SafeMark®, retail-specific CFPM exam will be available through Prometric in a variety of testing formats that will meet the needs of the retail food industry.

SafeMark® and Prometric hosted an Informational Webinar on benefits the new partnership offers.  Some of the benefits include:

  1. Flexible exam delivery options for the SafeMark CFPM exam through Internet-based testing at retail locations, Computer-based testing at Prometric testing centers, or Paper- based testing.
  2. Access to the Prometric SafeMark® CFPM exam.
  3. A CFPM proctor application process that is easy and free.
