How to Get a Food Worker Card
Maricopa County Environmental Health Services requires all food service workers to take and pass a food service worker course and receive a Food Worker Card from Maricopa County Environmental Health Services before beginning work in a food establishment. For detailed information about your training options, please review our FAQ.
Training online is the fastest and most affordable option. Complete the course, pass the test, print the Certificate of Completion, and present it-along with $5.00 (cash or debit/credit card) and a valid photo ID (providing proof of lawful presence) - to one of the health department offices in Maricopa County.
