  • The cost of the card is $10.00 and the card is valid for three years.
  • Food handler cards issued in any county are valid throughout Oregon.
  • If you have a valid food manager training certificate, it is accepted in lieu of a food handler card.
  • Food handler cards issued in other states are not valid in Oregon

Card Issues

Help! I've lost my card! The food handler provider website isn't working! My card didn't print!

To get a replacement food handler card you will need to contact the Local Environmental Health Officewhere you originally took the test. They will be able to issue a duplicate card for $5.00.

If you took the class online, you will need to contact the provider directly with your questions/problems. Each provider has contact information on their page that you can use to solve issues around online payment, printing, etc.

Unapproved providers

Any provider not listed in the Approved Provider column is NOT approved for Oregon certification. Because of copycat sites, please use the link for your county to connect you directly to the approved providers.
