Instructor Application

Registration to be a NEHA Food Safety Instructor requires a one-time administrative fee of $50.00 upon the approval of your application. To register, submit an application to demonstrate skills in three core areas in the food industry:

  1. food safety knowledge
  2. training or teaching skills, and
  3. experience.

All NEHA-registered instructors must also pass ANSI-CFP food manager exams and keep certificates up to date.


Exam Proctors

Food safety instructors who are registered with us can also proctor exams accredited by the Conference for Food Protection-American National Standards Institute (CFP-ANSI), including:

  • Certified Food Safety Manager Exam, National Registry of Food Safety Professionals (NRFSP): To become a proctor with NRFSP, complete their Test and Administrator/Proctor Training Course and the Proctor Application. To receive NEHA Trainer benefits and discounts, type "NEHA" along with your company name in the "Company Name" field of the application. This tells NRFSP that you are a trainer with NEHA. If you need help with the Proctor Application, email customerservice@nrfsp.com or call 800-446-0257. After completing 1) the NEHA Trainer application and 2) Proctor process with NRFSP, they will provide you with a Proctor number. Use this number when ordering materials and exams, and when teaching.
