  1. How long is my Registered Proctor certification good for?
    Three years
  2. Is certification good for 5 years? I have people who are already certified and want to know when they will need to re-certify.
    Yes - the certification is currently valid for 5 years.
  3. Are public schools required to certified in food safety and sanitation practices?
    I think it depends. To be sure of the correct answer, I suggest that you contact Scott Gilliam at the State Department of Health. His contact information should be on the website. He wrote a letter describing the "new" regulations that should have his contact information. Let me know if you do not get your answer. Rich
