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. Like many other states, the State of Florida requires food handlers to take a Food Handler Course and pass a test showing you understand food safety.

This Food Handler course conforms to the State of Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulations (FL DBPR) requirements for food handler training. It has been developed to meet the ANSI National Accreditation Board - Conference for Food Protection (ANAB-CFP) ANSI/ASTM E2659-18 requirements by training experts with the guidance of health department food safety officials and food management professionals. It is periodically updated to stay current with food codes and to improve quality; learn about changes here.
