LAS VEGAS – The Southern Nevada Health District is revamping its food handler card program this summer as it implements a new online food handler education course, eliminates temporary health cards and pares down the number of visits to the health district to receive a food handler or child care card.
Beginning Monday, July 2, the health district will kick off its new, online food handler training course for all child care or food handler card applicants. The new course is available by logging onto the health district website, www.SNHD.info. For clients without computer access, limited computer knowledge or limited English skills, the online training can be accessed by visiting one of the Las Vegas Urban League’s Nevada Public Computer Centers. Locations are listed on the Urban League’s website, www.nvpcc.org or by calling (702) 608-5245. Additional resources are available by contacting Vegas PBS (702) 799-1010 for information about its computer training lab availability. The health district’s online training is available in English and Spanish. Training must be completed prior to submitting an application for the food hander or child care card.
