so they can react to a customer comment.    
Worker level with few "bug" names and lots of cleaning, sanitizing and hand washing.  
Cost is $159 for the nationally recognized tests and $69 for Supervisor Level.
Contact us for how to take the Manager and Supervisor levels.

GFI Simply Safe Certified Food Handler (CFH)

Food Handler - $19.99

Simply Safe Food Handler has thus far been approved for South Carolina, and working on others.  Give us a contact in your state and we will seek their approval.  Having just taken a $7 ANSI approved Food Handler training and test online, I wouldn't want you to suffer like I did - seriously.  We say the same thing, in less words, without fancy words for simple things and we repeat important concepts and ignore things you don't need to know.  Your employees will REMEMBER what we drive into the students, which is the point of the whole thing.  So, pay $7 and get lost in the volume, or spend a bit more and get what you NEED to know.
Information on sign-up for Food Handler is under construction.
