A food handler program helps new and current food handlers keep up to date on laws and regulations for the county and state where they work. Most states require food handlers to take a food handler course. Our course is available in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
This Food Handler course has been developed to meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) E2659 standard practice for certificate programs requirements by training experts with the guidance of health department food safety officials, food management professionals and food handlers like you. It is periodically updated to stay current with food codes and to improve quality; learn about changes here.

Anyone who works in a place that serves food to the public, such as a restaurant, bar, food truck, or hospital, should hold a Food Handler Certificate to show they understand food safety. If you come into contact with food during preparation, cooking, serving, or cleaning, this training will be valuable for your job.
Holding a Food Handler Certificate shows employers that you have passed the minimum requirement of understanding food safety. Employers can check your certificate status through our on-line system.
When applying for jobs, you may call yourself a "Responsible Training Food Handler Certificate Recipient". You can refer to your "Responsible Training Food Handler Certificate" on your resume.
You may not say or imply that you are "certified," "certificated," "licensed," "registered" or "accredited"; these terms indicate a different type of program than food handler training.
The health board or other regulatory organization determines how long your certificate will be valid, usually two years but in some places it may be one or three. It will be printed on your certificate and may be checked by using our online verification program.
Upon successful completion of this training program, you will understand:
The Certificate Program consists of six easy to understand lessons in food handling, each with a quick quiz so you can be sure you understand the lesson and are prepared for the exam. To be awarded a food handler certificate, you must view all lessons and quizzes, then take 40 question multiple choice exam, which you must pass with 70% to be awarded a food handler certificate.
Anyone can sign up for this program. You will need basic internet skills such as locating and logging into websites, then reading and following the instructions found there. We use simple, straight-forward language so you can complete the course quickly and confidently.
Each lesson contains detailed information on the topic and fun exercises. The lessons have an optional voice over that will read the lesson out loud. After reviewing lesson materials, a 5 question quiz at the end will test what you have learned. Once you’ve completed all 6 lessons, you can take the final exam. You must score a passing grade of 70% to receive your Food Handler Certificate.
The Food Handler Certificate Program is designed to be completed at your own pace. However, you must complete each lesson before advancing to the next. All training must be completed within 6 months of registering. Each lesson can be reviewed in 15 minutes or less. Quizzes should take 5 minutes each.
