Food handler training providers must first be approved by the Utah Department of Health before they can offer courses and exams to food handler applicants. Please click on the link below for information on how to apply to the Utah Department of Health for course approval. The link will explain the process, and provide contact information for questions, if needed.
Approved providers must contact the local health department listed below to obtain the contact information you will need to send food handler certificate information required by rule and to make agreements regarding the manner of collection of the $15.00 permit fee. The standardized template that approved food handler training providers must use to send food handler data to all local health departments in Utah can by found by clicking on the food handler training template link below.
A copy of the food handler certificate and information must be sent to the local health department within whose jurisdiction the food handler applicant lives. For example, if an applicant lives in Carbon County, the information and certificate copy must be sent to Southeastern Utah Public Health Department; for Salt Lake, Salt Lake County Health Department, and so forth. In both cases, the provider must also abide by agreements made regarding the manner of collection of the $15.00 permit fee.
