New York Food Handlers License
Pay only when you pass!
Your city or county may have special food handler requirements. Please visit your local or state health department website for more information.
New York Residents: Train for free - pay only after you pass. You are 3 short steps away from getting your state-approved New York food handlers card and certificate.
The process is simple! To download and print your card and certificate:
- Complete the course.
- Pass the test.
- Make a payment.
Properly trained food handlers can improve food safety and reduce risks and behaviors commonly associated with foodborne illness and outbreaks.
Although your state does not directly require food handlers themselves to take training, it does require that the “Person-In-Charge will train the employees.” This person is responsible for knowing all food sanitation rules, as well as policies and procedures within the food establishment.
eFoodcard takes the burden of training off of the “Person-In-Charge” by providing employee training and testing. Each employee who passes the eFoodcard course receives a food handler certificate and card, which confirm that he or she has achieved a basic understanding of food safety and met the learning objectives of the course. In addition, you have third-party documentation of your compliance with your state’s laws, which can help protect you from possible lawsuits. Your business may even want to advertise, “All employees trained in safe food handling practices."
The eFoodcard program is easy to use on any device, including phones and tablets. It includes all of the instructional materials that food handlers will need to learn about basic sanitation and food preparation and earn a certificate of course completion and food handler card. All instructional materials and exams are available in English and Spanish, and food handlers pay for the program only when they pass!
*New York Residents: eFoodcard is not approved to provide training in New York City. Please visit your local health department for a list of vendors who offer valid training in your area.
