Food Handler Training 

Food establishments are strongly encouraged to provide training in food safety and sanitation to all employees who handle food and/or drinks. Having a staff trained in proper food handling, hand washing, and sanitation procedures is a sign of the establishment’s commitment to insuring that every effort is made to provide safe and sanitary food to the consumer. Establishments may provide their own in-house training program or obtain training at one at the state approved courses.

A list of approved Food Handler courses may be found at the following link:
