Information on Arizona Food Handler Cards

For those who are looking to acquire a food handler's card or certificate in the state of Arizona, you must report to and check with the specific county in which you will be working. Each of the state's 15 counties provides food handler's cards for foodservice workers in their jurisdiction. Maricopa and Pima Counties are the largest of the 15, with the strictest rules and most thorough examinations.

There are three basic types of food handler's certificates in the state of Arizona. These consist of the following:

  • • Food Service Worker – Required for all workers in foodservice establishments serving the public throughout the state.
  • • Volunteer Certificate – This is a certification just for those who are serving food in a volunteer setting.
  • • Certified Food Service Manager – At least one certification is required at each establishment serving food throughout the state.

The cost for each of these certifications is between $5 and $16 and can be purchased at the county Department of Health. For many of the volunteer certifications there is no fee.
