VIRGINIA Food Handlers

 

eFoodHandlers® VIRGINIA Basic Food Safety

The purpose of this course is to expose Virginia food handlers to important Food Safety concepts. This course is not intended to train microbiologists or sanitarians, but to instill a basic understanding and to create sensitivity and awareness toward critical food safety concepts (e.g. hand washing, cross-contamination, temperature control, etc).

This is a basic concepts course for Virginia and should not be confused with the Manager's Course that is required for the 'Person In Charge' in many states. If you have questions about what course is required for your jurisdiction and job classification, we recommend you contact your local Environmental Health department. They are also a good resource for information surrounding your unique food handling and preparation situation.

Virginia Policy
The State of Virginia does not have specific requirements for food safety training, although they do require the person in charge to be able to demonstrate food safety competence. Some jurisdictions (e.g. Norfolk, Portsmouth) have adopted their own rules and may not accept an eFoodhandlers Certificate. Check with your local Environmental Health department to make sure you are receiving the correct training.
