Food Hygiene Facilities Program
The Department of Health works with food service establishments as defined by s. 381.0072, Florida Statute to help ensure their products are not a source of foodborne illness. Generally this includes food service operations located in institutional settings (such as schools, assisted living facilities, detention facilities, adult day cares, etc.), civic and fraternal organizations, bars and lounges that don't prepare foods, and theaters that limit their food service to items customarily served at theaters (such as beverages, pop corn, hot dogs and nachos).
Food Hygiene Training Course
Sanitary inspections are routinely conducted at school cafeterias, fraternal organizations, lounges, health care institutions and theaters. The purpose of these inspections is to prevent the spread of foodborne disease and illness.
The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County, Environmental Health provides a four hour Food Hygiene Training Course that is an excellent tool for food hygiene managers to prepare for taking State mandated Food Manager Certification exams. The course is recognized by the State Division of Hotels and Restaurants as an approved food hygiene employee training that they require annually for all workers in the facilities they inspect. In addition it is approved by the Child Care Licensing section of Children and Family Services as a continuing education course required of managers and employees of child care centers.
The course schedule has been adjusted to 4 times per year and held on the 3rd Tuesday of the below listed course dates. Class time runs from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and is held at the Florida Department of Health in Volusia County, 1845 Holsonback Dr., Daytona Beach.
The Registration fee is $40 per person payable on the day of the class. We recommend attendees bring paper and pencil for note taking as there will be a test at the end of the session. A passing score on this test will provide attendees with a certificate valid for five years. Please call for information, pre-registration and directions.
