Online Food Handler Certificates
The Texas Department of State Health Services provides a list of approved online Food Handler Course Providers on their Accredited Food Handlers Training Programs page.
There will be a fee for third party online training programs. All individuals taking an online course and receiving an approved online training certificate will still be responsible for paying the $20.00 fee for a two year Food Handlers Certificate. The Health District will verify the validity of all online providers.
