Information on Indiana Food Handler Cards
The current Indiana food handler requirements, dictated by the Department of Health since 2005, require each foodservice worker throughout the state to take a specified training program. Upon completion of this short program, an exam will be given. Each employee who successfully passes this exam will be granted an Indiana State Food Handler's Card, valid for two years from the date of issue.
Currently, there are three organizations providing training and examination services for Indiana foodservice workers. These include the private services of ServSafe, Food Safety Manager Certification Examination and Certified Professional Food Manager. Each of these organizations work with the Indiana Department of Health and their contact information can be found below.
