On January 6, 2004, the Gila County Board of Supervisors approved Ordinance #04-01, Environmental Health – Food Service Worker and Food Service Manager Training.  This ordinance establishes minimum training requirements for food service workers and food service managers who perform duties directly or indirectly related to preparation of food or drink intended for human consumption.

The Food Worker Training open-book test can be taken at either location of the Gila County Division of Health and Community Services or at any Gila County Library location.  The fee for the test is $15.00 and you must pass with a minimum of 70%. Food Service Worker Cards are good for a period of 2 years.

Certified Food Service Managers – All food establishments must have a Certified Food Service Manager on staff and available at all times of operation. This training and certification is done by private outside vendors. Please contact one of the approved vendors to arrange training and certification.
