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?
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.  Three people are given access for $25 and 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 $100 and takes one day to complete. Either way, you must pass the TummySafe© exam with at least 80 percent to be certified TummySafe©. If you use the online course, the exam costs $100.

I know I want to take the traditional class. What should I do?
To register for a class, please contact the instructor listed in the class schedule below.

Take TummySafe© online!!!
For $25, you will be emailed a link to the course and 3 login accounts to TummySafe© online. You can complete the course on computer and Android phones but it is NOT compatible with IPhones or IPads.
