Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of a group purchase?
A group purchase allows you to train multiple employees, track their progress, and access all of their certificates.
What is a voucher?
A voucher is a code that gives an employee access to a food safety course that was pre-purchased by an employer. Each voucher code is valid for one specific course.
How do employees redeem their vouchers?
There are two ways to redeem a voucher:
  • Click the link in the email sent by the employer regarding their voucher.
  • Manually enter the voucher code on our Redeem Voucher page.
Both of these options will add the pre-purchased course to their cart. As they continue through the checkout process, they will need to create their own free account.
Why does each employee need their own account?
Food handler cards/certificates are generated using the name of the account holder. If an employee completes a course on another person’s account, their certificate will have the wrong name. To protect the integrity of our courses, we cannot make full name changes on a certificate and the employee would have to retake the entire course on their own account.
What languages are available for training?
  • Food handler training is available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Serbo-Croatian, and ASL (American Sign Language).
  • Food safety manager training, the Food Protection Manager Certification Exam and Food Allergens Awareness Training are available in English and Spanish.
  • Alcohol server/seller training is available in English.
