Food Handler Training & Testing
Food workers are required to obtain a food handler card within 30 days of beginning work in a food service establishment. Food handler cards issued in any Oregon county are valid anywhere in Oregon. The cards are valid for three years. If you have a valid food manager training certificate, it is accepted in lieu of a food handler card. Food handler cards issued in other states are not valid in Oregon.
