Small Operator Permit

If you currently own a valid Wisconsin CFPM License and want to proceed with a Small Operator Permit, there are certain requirements you must meet, i.e., your license cannot be expired and you must employ five (5) or fewer total food handlers, including yourself.*

A food handler is an individual engaged in the preparation or processing of food. Examples include:
• a chef
• a waitress that prepares a salad
• a server that scoops ice cream
• a bartender that cooks a frozen pizza or drops breaded mushrooms, etc. into a fryer

Note that this 3-hour course is also required to renew your Small Operator Permit.

*Contact your county health department or local municipality for your county ordinance, which can be stricter than these minimum code requirements. Several counties in Wisconsin require a person in charge (PIC) with a CFM License on site every hour of food preparation. Click the following link for your local health department information
