Information on Hawaii Food Handler Cards

The Hawaii Department of Health provides educational classes on food protection, preparation and safety to foodservices industry workers throughout the Islands. The Health Department's Food Protection branch's Food Handlers Education Program provides instruction to workers in a variety of settings, from classes to job fairs, on-site seminars and online courses. For more advanced courses, as well as foodservice managers courses, the Department of Health provides free two-day courses and certification exams for the state's workers. Check with your local county for more information.

Applicants are able to apply for courses and certification exams through the Hawaii Department of Health website. State certification workshops are offered every two, three or four months, depending on which county you are planning to work. Health department offices in the larger counties such as those on Oahu offer more frequent courses and examinations than those on the outer islands. There is a statewide number to call to find workshops and courses in your specific area at (808) 933-0917.
