NEHA Food Handler Certificate

About this Program:

  • Holding a NEHA certificate not only benefits an individual in providing competency and capability in the field of food safety and protection, but also benefits the community and employers. It serves to verify that a professional has achieved what is perceived as a baseline level of competency in this area of food protection.
