“Class was great, however the Certificate would not download. Checked my computer settings and they appeared to be fine. It would be great if our certificates were emailed, as I ended up taking another food safety class, not near as detailed, just to get a certificate emailed.”
“The test and modules were great, helped me learn pretty easily. However, my certificate won’t download and it’s been 3 days. But other than that the program was great!”
“Lessons were clearly given, test had good questions. But I can't print my certificate or card. Neither are updated with my name or completion date. I can't get ahold of anyone to assist me! Other than that, I would suggest to someone else.”
“This course was easy to understand and explained every thing to the point. When I took my test I was proud to have passed with 90%. Gia from customer service was great she helped me get my card in seconds. Thank you!”

A Qualified Food Operator is a food operator employed in a full-time position who has demonstrated an understanding of safe food handling methods. They must be employed full-time, meaning 30 hours per week or the number of hours per week the food facility is open. The qualified food operator must also be in a supervisory position which means that person directs and oversees the performance of other food service employees.
The Qualified Food Operator is expected to operate the food service facility, mobile food vending facility, and catering establishment and is responsible for guaranteeing the training of food service personnel. The food operator must also maintain documentation in the written form of the training program and individual training records of employees and must ensure these records available to the local health department upon request.
Yes, documentation must be provided upon request to the registered sanitation, authorized agent, or local supervisor of health, and maintained on file at the foodservice facility.
No, the Qualified Food Operator does not have to be present at the food facility at all times but they must have another employee designated to be in charge when they are not able to be there.
The law stated that you have 60 days to make sure a food establishment has a Qualified Food Operator employed when a business is just started, there is a change of ownership, or if the previously employed, certified food protection manager quits.
You must employ a replacement Qualified Food Operator within 60 days from the day the previous Qualified Food Operator left the business.
