Food Handlers Classes
Classes held @ Wetzel Tyler Health Dept the 1st Thursday of every month.
Food Handlers Classes are for those working with foods and food service. The Health Department requires all food service workers to have a current food handlers card, issued by the Health Department.
This course is required for all Wetzel and Tyler County employees that handle food and/or wash dishes. The purpose of this course is to reduce food borne illness and teach sanitary food practices. The course covers proper food handling practices that are required under the 2013 FDA Food Code. Employees must obtain a valid food service worker card within thirty (30) days of hire. A copy of this card must be kept at the place of employment. Employees without a current card after thirty (30) days shall be taken off of the schedule until a current card is issued.
