What is TummySafe©?
TummySafe© is a food managers' certification course for childcare providers.

How can I complete the class?
The current version of TummySafe© is an online course.  The online course costs $25 (use the paper form or order online with a credit card) and is completed on your computer and at your own pace.  One person is given access for $25 with the option of purchasing two additional accesses for $5 each. For a total of $35 for three people. Each person is awarded 6 contact hours once they finish the online course. Traditional classes are still offered on an as needed basis. The traditional class costs $125 and takes one day to complete. Either way, you must pass the TummySafe© exam with at least 80 percent to be certified. If you use the online course, the exam costs $100.
