Convenience Store Exam

The Convenience Store Exam

exclusively through National Registry

National Registry is committed to the convenience store industry via active roles supporting the Conference for Food Protection, The Global Food Safety Initiative, and The Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing among others. National Registry’s new exam is the first in the industry designed exclusively for convenience store managers and is available in paper and pencil, online, and in testing centers around the country.

The Convenience Store Manager Certification is created by subject matter experts with questions and scenarios directly applicable to the c-store environment. The exam is accredited by ANSI and accepted in the same jurisdictions as the standard food manager exam. Pair the convenience store exam with any training of your choice based on the most recent Food Code.

Clients can use testing centers as well as web-based remote proctoring, as National Registry is the first and only organization for food safety manager certification accredited by the American National Standards Institute approved to use a remote-proctored exam delivery system.

How you can take the exam:‬‬‬

  • paper and pencil
  • Pearson VUE Testing Centers (the largest network of exam centers in the United States)
  • supervised computer-based exams through a partnership with Diversys Learning
  • secure testing kiosks with Innovative Exams

The new exam administration systems will continue to support National Registry's robust data reporting tools shared via their popular data portals, and the exams will be updated, as always, using industry subject matter experts based on the most recent FDA Food Code for all of its exam programs including c-stores.
