LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Southern Nevada Health District has introduced an online renewal system for Food Handler Safety Training Card.

SNHD clients who took their food safety test in person at a Health District location after July 2018 can now renew their cards online — no appointment required.

Individuals should have their Food Handler Card number and expiration date ready when they begin the online process to see if they qualify to renew online. Individuals who did not complete the training at a Health District location, or completed the training before July 2018, are still required to make an appointment to test in person for the renewal.

The process for renewing a Food Handler Safety Training card includes:

  • Study and prepare for the test. Free training materials in a variety of languages are available at www.snhd.info/foodhandler.
  • Pass the test with a score of 70% or better.
    • If the test is not passed the first time, it can be retaken as early as the next day. The retest fee of $5.00 will be added to the card fee at check out.
  • Pay the $20.00 card fee (and retest fee if applicable).
  • If completing online, print the Food Handler Safety Training Certificate to be used in place of the Food Handler Card or Health Card.
    • The certificate is good for three years.
