Environmental Public Health Division
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
