15 credits get you started

The first step to achieving a CFSP certification is getting 15 credits of foodservice experience approved by NAFEM. Not sure how many credits you have? Use our Credit Accumulation Calculator below to estimate your current credit total. Then, create an account or log in to upload proof of credits as you earn them.

Each item you submit for CFSP credit must have the required back-up documentation scanned and uploaded into NAFEM’s system or the credits can’t be approved. Accepted back-up documentation includes a copy of a badge, a copy of a certificate, a copy of a diploma, or something that clearly shows your name and the name/date of the event to directly prove participation. Also included are NAFEM approved manufacturer online training sessions.
