Health Cards for Employment in Food Service and Childcare Now Require Online Training

If you live in a family with teenagers you know all about getting their health cards to work part time jobs.

Now they need to complete training online BEFORE going to the health district to pass the test.

The Southern Nevada Health District now requires food handlers to get food handler training online before coming to its office to receive a health card.

The new online training replaces the movie food handlers were required to see at the Health District. Now you must complete the online training before coming to the Health District to apply for your health card. 

To take the online training, go to the Health District’s website  and click on the food safety training link. Print the certificate of completion and bring it with you to get your health card. The cost of the training is free.

If you do not have access to a computer or need assistance using a computer, there are resources available at Nevada Public Computer Centers (702) 608-5245 or Vegas PBS (702) 799-1010. More information is available in this attachment, including a list of Urban League locations that offer free Internet access for taking the online training. For further information, call the Health District at: (702) 759-1099.
