Food Handler Certification Cards

As of July 1, 1996 all restaurant employees and other commercial food establishment employees are required to obtain Food Handler Certification cards. Cards are issued after completion of a food handler test, which covers key critical control point procedures for preparing, handling, holding and storage of foods. The test consists of 32 questions and requires a passing score of 75%. Successful completion of the test earns a Food Handler Certification card that is accepted anywhere in the State of Oregon and is valid for 3 years.
The fee for taking this test is $10.00.

The test is offered via computer in our office lobby. The computer test allows you to review questions that were missed and provides an explanation of that test question. No special computer knowledge is required to take this test.

The test is offered at the Health Services Building from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays. (No testing on National Holidays.)

Pre-registration is not required, but pre-reading the Food Handler's Manual is strongly recommended.
