Tulsa County and Oklahoma City have Food Manager Certification requirements.
Altus, Lawton, Moore, Norman, Tulsa, and other municipalities have Food Handler requirements.
As of November 1, 2007, House Bill 1804 went into effect stating that anyone attending a food handler class or applying for a manager’s certificate from the Tulsa Health Department must sign a statement that they are either (1) a United States citizen, or (2) a qualified alien under the federal Immigration & Nationality Act and are lawfully present in the United States.
Food Managers: To receive a Manager’s Certification, you must successfully complete a training program. After completing a training program, you must register your manager certificate with the Tulsa Health Department (THD).
Food Handlers: All area food service employees must have an original, valid food handler permit from the THD in their possession while at work. To receive a permit, you must successfully complete a THD Food Handler Class or other approved training. Food Handler Permits are non-transferable. The fee for the permit is $10.00, cash only. Upon passing the test, you will receive a photo-identification Food Handler Permit. Food Handler Permits must be available at all times while the employee is working. The Health Department inspector will not accept a photocopy. Additional duplicate permits are available for a fee of $5.00.
Food Service Operator Certification is required in the municipalities of Oklahoma City, Edmond, Midwest City, Warr Acres, Spencer, The Village, Nichols Hills, Harrah and Del City. This Certification is a manager’s level certification. Each food service establishment is required to have at least one certified Food Service Operator.
Food Handler Training of all employees is not required in Oklahoma County or the municipalities contained within Oklahoma County. Currently only Food Manager Training is required. If your facility or organization is interested in basic Food Handler Training, we can conduct a basic training for your group. We do not issue food handler cards, but can issue a certificate of attendance if it is needed to document training for your organization.
