The ServSafe® California Food Handler Programs complies with California food handler regulations.
Law requires all food handlers in the state of California have a California Food Handler Card. New hires have 30 days from the date of hire to obtain a card. San Diego County Code requires all food handlers to have a valid food handler card. New hires in San Diego County have the first 10 days of employment to obtain a card.
San Diego County course takers will want to review the San Diego County Supplement, to adequately prepare for the Assessment at the end of the course.
A food handler is defined by law as a person who works in a food facility and performs any duties that involve the preparation, storage or service of food in a food facility.
Please contact your local health department for Riverside and San Bernardino counties as they do not accept ServSafe.
