Virginia Policy
The State of Virginia does not have specific requirements for food safety training, although they do require the person in charge to be able to demonstrate food safety competence. Some jurisdictions (e.g. Norfolk, Portsmouth) have adopted their own rules and may not accept an eFoodhandlers Certificate. Check with your local Environmental Health department to make sure you are receiving the correct training.
