Small Operators Training Certificate

If you currently own a valid Wisconsin CFM License and are looking to proceed with a Small Operators Training Certificate there are certain requirements you need to meet. These include; your license cannot have expired more than 30 days and you must employee five (5) or fewer total food handlers which includes yourself. A food handler means – any individual engaged in the preparation or processing of a 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

*Contact your county health department or local municipality for a 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.
