About Food Safety Certification:
The Idaho State food safety course covers basic microbiology, food borne illnesses and the general requirements for food handlers in the Idaho Food Code. The course includes information on safety and maintenance and operation of most common food service equipment.
At the end of the class, participants may take PHD’s exam to obtain a food safety certification card, which is valid only in Idaho. You may also obtain an Idaho State Food Safety and Sanitation Certificate online through the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. Please bring a valid, state issued ID for the exam.
Location: For large groups we may be able to come to you.

Per recent updates to Idaho Food Code, as of July 1, 2018, at least one supervisory employee must show proficiency of required information through passing a test that is part of an accredited food safety program. Each food establishment shall have at least one available supervisor trained in food safety and sanitation and shall have employed food workers who are trained in food safety and sanitation, which is commensurate to each food worker’s responsibilities.
