When the time comes for food service supervisors to renew their certifications, many opt simply to study and take the online course without enrolling in a full MN food manager recertification class. We think only positive things come out of taking the full course rather than skipping it during certification renewal.
Nothing beats interacting and engaging with an experienced food safety instructor and getting together with fellow food service professionals during training. MN food manager recertification classes sometimes bring up food safety issues you may have forgotten or may not be aware of. Interacting with fellow professionals and a trained teacher help brings solutions and answers questions about unclear topics.
There is a common misconception that a MN food manager recertification class will cost just as much as the initial food safety certification class and taking the course online can save money. Actually, the fees for instructor-led classes are the same as online recertification. With costs being similar, it makes sense to take advantage of an environment where you have the opportunity to ask questions and receive insights from a food safety expert.
Finally, taking the courses at home runs the risk of distraction. Taking the class in person keeps students focused and engaged in the material. Many students struggle to focus when given the opportunity to pause the training and become sidetracked by other tasks. Completing your recertification in one sitting during a scheduled class and testing session will reduce the chances you’ll lose focus while at home.
