Food worker education and testing is now available online. The online food handling safety instruction and test costs $10 and requires payment with a Mastercard, Visa or Discover credit or debit card.
A printer is needed to print out the card after the applicant passes the test.
The process, including the training on food safety, takes an average of about 45 minutes. For people planning to use computers at libraries on San Juan, Lopez and Orcas Islands, please call ahead to insure a 45-minute to an hour of uninterrupted computer time will be available.
The web-based test is available online at www.foodworkercard.wa.gov
