Food Handler Training & Exam

Licensed Texas Electrical Contractor completing the required 14 hours of education online with RocketCert

Here you can find all the information you need on obtaining your Food Handler Card in Texas including how to obtain or renew your certification.

The state of Texas requires all food employees to obtain a Food Handler Card. Employees are required to obtain this certification within 30 days of their employment. If you are already certified as a Food Protection Manager (CFPM) you do not need a food handler card. Our training course will provide you with this required certification and crucial knowledge on how to ensure all food is prepared and served safely. Based on studies by the CDC, the completion of this type of training helps to decrease the spread of foodborne illnesses in restaurants.
