“The Information was certainly more in depth from the food handling cards i have gotten in other states. But it can also be a grind. Thus, retaining the information was all well and good. Finding a way to have the material break that barrier would help with retention.”

“The course is complete and very well organized, however,I found it nerve wracking! Just kidding, but since I have been out of school a good many years it was a tad nerve breaking to take your course and test for fear I’d fail! No worries though. I scored an 85 ! I think perhaps I took the entire process more seriously than younger participants. ( I’’m 76 years old and needed my Certificate to volunteer)”

“It was a smooth experience that gave great options for the exam. The questions were different if you did a redo of your exam, which I liked a lot. Overall I would recommend and will use the same website/company for my renewal in 2027.”
