Study materials for the online health card test are not available because the online health card test is no longer offered, according to the Southern Nevada Health District. The program used to be a requirement for food handlers in the state, but has since been replaced with the "Food Handler Safety Training Card" as of 2013.
Other states offer food handler certificates via programs from accredited organizations. People that are interested in getting food handler certificates usually need to do so in order to handle food, such as a person who is employed as a "food handler" or someone who works with children's food at a daycare or school cafeteria. There are different criteria depending upon the state where the employee lives and works so it is best for all employees that handle food to check in with their employers as well as their local health district.
A food handler certificate will teach a person how to clean food, cook food and store food properly in order to avoid sickness. While these guidelines are important for all people including those cooking in the comfort of their own home, they are only required to be taught to those who serve the public food. One of the most popular tips and common tips given in the course is that it is of the utmost importance that those working wash their hands often, as noted by the United States Department of Agriculture.
