Food Handlers Card Texas Restaurants Require

Author : Jan Kaas

Depending on your position with a food service business, a food handlers card Texas Department of State Health Services approves may be all you need to work in most restaurants.

Additionally, if the establishment provides alcohol for their customers, according to the TABC Texas state law requires employees to be trained in that part of the business as well.
A food handlers card Texas authorities recognize may be different in color and size, depending on the program that issues the card, but as long as it contains the required information it will be deemed valid. Primarily it needs to show the course name and address as well as the accreditation number from the Texas Department of State Health Services to be considered valid. A food handling card Texas accepts is valid for a period of five years before requiring renewal.

Training for a food handlers card Texas accepts can be provided by a food safety certified food service manager, who is responsible for training all employees working within the establishment. Similarly, for certification from the TABC Texas law allows employees to be trained by a licensed person within the establishment, but may not work alone until they earn their TABC Texas issued certificate. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has its own rules and regulations, which are different than those required to earn a food handlers card Texas authorities recognize, but many trainers, both online and offline, offer accredited training for both.

Although only the person or persons in charge of food service is required to have certification, those who plan to move up in the business may want to work towards their food handlers card Texas health officials recognize. By having their card they are available for promotion and become more valuable to their employer, since they have their food handlers card Texas recognizes and can work on their own. Working in a business in which alcohol is also sold, having their TABC Texas issued certificate will also allow them to work in other areas of the business as well.

The cost of obtaining a food handlers card Texas health officials have approved can be minimal, especially if the business offers on-site group training sessions. After training, class participants can typically take the exam online for their food handlers card Texas accepts, as well as their certificate TABC Texas will recognize as being valid. If the exams are taken online and participants score high enough to pass, the documentation can typically be printed out immediately.

Since much of the training in a food service business begins with those already certified, owners and other managers will want to keep an eye on the progress of new employees to verify they are following the right steps to insure food safety within their business.
