What is TummySafe©?
TummySafe© is a food certification course for childcare providers.
Who can complete the TummySafe© program?
Only childcare providers are allowed to take the course.
How can I complete the class?
TummySafe© is offered as a traditional class and as a nontraditional, self-paced CD tutorial. The traditional class costs $100 and takes one day to complete. The CD version costs $25 (use the paper form or order online with a credit card) and is completed at home and at your own pace. Either way, you must pass the TummySafe© exam with at least 80 percent to be certified TummySafe©. If you use the CD tutorial, the exam costs $100.
