Depending on where you live in the country, there are many ways of how to obtain your food handler’s license, including in person, online or on the job. Each option has its benefits and each person who requires their food handler’s license should weigh the options to determine which method is best for them.

A food handler is someone that handles food in any capacity, whether as a butcher, baker, sandwich shop employee, or a sous chef in an expensive and high class restaurant. Safe food handling involves the proper storage, handling and cooking of foods to ensure that the public is safe.

Cross-contamination can occur at any level of food handling, so by taking the course or learning on the job, you will gain the knowledge and confidence to be sure you are following safe practices and keeping your customers safe.

Some will have the option of obtaining their food handler’s license on the job, while others will need to either attend a class in person, or take the course online. Each way is designed to ensure that the material is understood, and that safe food handling practices are learned and comprehended properly.

The course is inexpensive and the test will determine whether you have learned how to properly handle food. Nobody wants to consume food that was improperly handled; for instance a fresh salad that was prepared on a cutting board used to cut raw poultry. This license lets customers know that their food preparer knows what they are doing and hopefully they are following protocol.

In order to be sure that you take a course that is recognized by the state and county that you live in, it’s best to contact the local health board, who will be able to provide you with a list of accredited schools and programs.
