“I needed my food handlers license to volunteer at the USO. This was so easy to access from the comfort of home. The lessons were very detailed with lots of illustrations. I passed the test with 90%. Thank you for providing all that I needed to meet the needed requirements!”
“Quick, easy and straightforward. Could not have asked for a better or simpler experience in getting my food handlers card, so thank you for that. Seemed to have TONS of research material to assist anyone with the knowledge needed to pass as well as just to educate. I winged it and passed but there are those who would prefer to study I suppose. All in all excellent site, price and system.”
“This course was in depth and very informative.. I have taken many food service courses, and this one by far is the best I have ever experienced. I suggested to my employer to make this course the preferred choice in standard food service worker certification. Thank you for such an amazing course!”

CALIFORNIA FOOD HANDLER REQUIREMENTS
Food establishments that prepare, work with, or serve non-prepackaged food that could be hazardous, are required to have an employee or owner who has passed an ANSI-CFP food safety certification examination that is approved and accredited.
|Approved Certification Exams|
Always Food Safe
|Food Safety Training Requirement|
California Food Handler Card: According to Senate Bill 303, every food handler is required to acquire a food handler card within 30 days of the day they are hired from an ANSI-accredited provider.
ServSafe are all ANSI-CFP accredited exams accepted in California.
Taking and passing an approved food safety exam that is accredited will be sufficient. However, taking a food safety training course is recommended to help you prepare for the certification exam.
You are not required by law to register with the local or state Environmental Health Services. Test providers, ServSafe, will provide a certificate that is numbered to each individual who passes the certification exam. All health inspectors will view a valid certificate as being in compliance.
The law states that a food facility has 60 days to make sure a certified food protection manager is employed when the business is just started, there was a change of ownership, or the previous certified food protection manager quits.
Food establishments that are mobile, for example, hot dog carts, farmer’s markets, produce stands, and any market that deals with only packaged foods, are not required to have a certified food protection manager employed. Contact your local health department for more information or if you are unsure.
School districts and colleges must fulfill the food manager requirements as well unless they are managed by a food safety certification program that trains them in food safety procedures.
If all of the food establishments are owned by the same person or company, then only one certified food protection manager is mandatory for the operations. If the food establishments are owned by different people or companies or are at different locations, then each one must have its own certified food protection manager.
