Information on Colorado Food Handler Cards

In the state of Colorado, the health department in the county in which you are working issues food handler's cards for food service workers. Each county has its own specific examination and fee. Most fees are between $5 and $16 for a card that will maintain validity for between 2 and 5 years. Many counties do not require a class to be taken, but it is a good idea to take at least an online review course before taking your exam.
