How long is my Food Handlers Card valid?
It is valid for 3 years. At the end of that period, you will need to retake the course and pass the exam.
eFoodhandlers makes that process simple and straightforward.
How many times can I take the exam?
You can take the exam up to 2 times. There is not an extra charge for retaking the course/exam a second time.
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 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.
