IMPORTANT

Important notice!

Licensed Food Establishments in Arlington County, City of Alexandria, and Fairfax County are required by law to have someone who is a Certified Food Protection Manager, also referred to as a PIC (Person in Charge) by local Health Departments, who is in “immediate” control during all operating hours. Certified Food Protection Managers must take and pass an accredited Food Protection Manager Certification Exam. If Health Department Inspectors or other Officials request verification of Food Protection Manager Certification, all PICs must be ready to produce the original certificate documenting their Food Protection Manager Certification along with a valid, government-issued photo ID that verifies their identify.

  • Learn More

    Those with Northern Virginia Food Manager ID Cards issued by ORS need only present their valid Food Manager ID Card. Printed on a durable plastic and covered by a protective overlay, the Food Manager ID includes a color photo, type of Food Manager Certification Exam passed, where the exam was proctored, and the expiration date.
    ORS also administers the LIMITED Food Manager Exam and issues the LIMITED Northern Virginia Food Manager ID for persons working at Licensed Food Establishments which serve only pre-prepared foods such as frankfurters, packaged foods heated microwave ovens, etc. Note: Local Health Departments make the determination if a STANDARD or LIMITED Food Protection Manager Certificate is appropriate for each Licensed Food Establishment.
    As a means of providing a small measure of relief to Licensed Food Establishments and people working in restaurants and foodservice operations during the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery (when most hospitality businesses including our own have struggled mightily), ORS Interactive, Inc., is revising prices and service offerings for Food Manager ID Cards, One-Day (6-Hour) Food Safety Exam Preparation Classes, and Food Protection Manager Certification Exams in our video-proctored, Computer Testing Center (which provides immediate results).
    ORS Interactive is placing an even greater on training and remediation—now and in the future. We have changed our policies for “re-taking / auditing” our One-Day (6 Hour) Food Safety Exam Preparation Class to allow those who take the Class and fail the Exam to “re-take / audit” the Class an unlimited number of times without extra cost. We have found this to be successful on a limited basis and are extending this benefit to all our One Day (6-Hour) Food Safety Class participants. We’re also dropping the cost for re-taking the ServSafe Certified Food Protection Manager Exam from $70 to $35 for as many attempts as required to successfully pass the Exam.

FAQ

Answering Your Questions

We are here to answer any of your questions. If you still have any doubts, contact us by phone or email.

  • What is the difference between Limited and Standard Food Manager Cards?

    There are two types of food managers certifications; STANDARD and LIMITED. Which one you get will depend on what kind of work you do.
    Standard Food Managers certifications are required for most facilities which prepare and serve food (including most restaurants, bars, cafeterias, food trucks, bakeries, and food stands). Your must pass a recognized Food Protection Manager Certification Exam to get the Standard Food Manager Certification. All restaurants and foodservice establishments which are not classified as “Limited” by their local Health Department are required to have at least one person on premise at all times who holds a Standard Food Protection Manager’s Certification, and can produce either the original certificate or a NVCFM Photo ID card.
    Limited Food Manager’s Cards are required for facilities defined as “those which typically serve hotdogs, prepackaged foods, or other types of food that are not potentially hazardous.” You must pass a Limited Food Protection Manager Certification Exam at the ORS Interactive office to get a Limited Food Manager Certification.
    It is the responsibility of each person applying for a Standard Northern Virginia Certified Food Manager (NVCFM) Card or a Limited Northern Virginia Certified Food Manager (NVCFM) Card to know the correct classification of their establishment. Those who are uncertain of their establishment’s classification should contact their local Health Department before making application for a Northern Virginia Certified Food Manager (NVCFM) Card.
