Information on Alabama Food Handler Cards
Throughout the state of Alabama, most every food service worker that serves or prepares foods for guests, clients or patients is required to obtain a food handler card every two years from their county health department. Alabama residents who wish to procure their food handler's certification must complete a short course, either in a nearby classroom location or online. If you complete your course online you may often times print the certification and provide this to your employer.
