What is the difference between a certificate and a certification?

A certificate program is a training program combined with an assessment. Successful participants in these programs receive a certificate, not a certification. A certification program is an exam that yields a certification to individuals who pass. Individuals who pass a certification program become certified. These programs do not include a formal training component, although training may be used to prepare. The food handler course and test is a certificate program. How can I purchase multiple food handlers card at once? If you have multiple employees that need food handler cards, you can purchase training through our Group Purchase System.

How long can I access the course?

When you purchase a StateFoodSafety course, you automatically get one year of unlimited access to the training videos. Take your time through the course or come back after completion to brush up on your food safety knowledge!
