  • Someone working in a facility who is not a food handler on a regular basis, but fills in as a food handler when needed, must have food handler training.
  • All food handlers employed in nursing homes, licensed daycare homes and facilities, hospitals, schools, and long-term care facilities must renew their training every three years.
  • New employees shall receive training within 30 days of hire.
  • Food handler training is not transferable between individuals or employers.
  • Food handler training is encouraged but not required for nursing and therapy staff. Unpaid volunteers are not considered food handlers.
