    Abstract

    The Conference for Food Protection (CFP) has been working to develop standards for a nationally recognized, voluntary program that certifies food protection managers. The goal is to provide a national standard for certified food protection managers. Universal acceptance of a Certified Food Protection Manager credential will offer many benefits, including reciprocity and free movement of certified managers among regulatory jurisdictions. A nationally accepted credential also will reduce duplication of effort in testing, which should translate into cost savings for the food industry. To be universally accepted according to CFP standards, certification must be based on a reliable, valid, and legally defensible examination. This article investigates the many processes involved in developing a legally defensible and psychometrically valid job analysis.
