Earning Your CDM, CFPP
If you are already working in food service management, you may wonder why you should earn the Certified Dietary Manager, Certified Food Protection Professional (CDM, CFPP) credential.
The answer is simple. Those with the nationally recognized CDM, CFPP credential are in high demand due to regulatory requirements (varying by state). Plus, those with the CDM, CFPP credential earn more money than dietary managers who are not certified.
