An online course can be taken in the convenience of a persons home at the cost of $21, and is valid for three years.

The online Food Handler's class is being offered through Provo based CourtesyTraining, a division of Proton Communications.

The UCHD will also continue to offer the Food Handler's Class on Tuesday's at 3 p.m. A Food Handler's Class in Spanish is available the first Wednesday of each month, also starting at 3 p.m. Both classes are offered at the Utah County Health and Justice Building (151 S. University Avenue, Provo) in Suite 2500, and lasts about two hours. The class costs $15, and we can only accept cash.

A Food Handler's Card is a permit for individuals that work to prepare food, and not a license to sell or distribute food from a restaurant, temporary stand, or other type of eating establishment.
