Food Handler Course

Food Handler Course

The City of Danbury Department of Health & Human Services will be offering a basic food handler training course in an effort to educate food service establishments and provide a refresher for food service workers. This three-hour course will cover basic elements that a food service worker must demonstrate to be in compliance with the requirements of the Public Health Code for Class 3 and 4 Food Establishments. It will also cover important information on foodborne illness prevention, including time and temperature controls, food safety, cross contamination, and personal hygiene.

A certificate and record of training are provided to those who complete the food handler training and pass the test. This may satisfy the “Designated Alternate” requirement.

All courses are held from 9:00am – 12:00pm at Danbury City Hall located 155 Deer Hill Avenue, Danbury, CT 06810. Please check in to the Health & Human Services Department 15 minutes before the class begins.
