When I was a teenager I worked behind the seafood/deli counter at a supermarket. I had to wear a hairnet because of some law even though my hair was only 1/4inch long and the net made me look like a Chia Pet. That's all I know about food safety. Sorry.

I would call your local Health Department and TABC to check if the online courses qualify. I have a food handler card for Virginia and had to take a short class at the school where I work. All it involved was a trainer from the local health department coming to discuss food safety rules and the showing of a short video. I would imagine it would be easy to learn the same stuff online.

Can't you ask your manger's manager or your manager's manager's manager? I say take it right to the top if no-one can answer your questions!

I totaly give upon this one, i rang Texas health department thinking that they would surely help thought wrong! they passed me from department to department after the 7th department, i put the phone down :curse:
Everyone else at work went downtown to do their exam, can't drive at the minute becasue the transmition has gone on the car, that means i will have to pay $80 in total on taxi fares. I am only working as a bloody cashier in a cheap and dirty supermaket in the middle of the hood for crying out loud! :curse::curse:

I have found a few more sites, when i go into work later, i will give them the info i have and take it from there.

I'm supposed to take a ServSafe course next month for work. It's two or three days long with an end of course test. Should I pass, it'll help my restaurant's sanitation rating.

I'd be quite worried if supervisors didn't know about which providers to use for food safety.

Do you work in a restaurant too?

What a waste of time this is, they told me that i needed a TABC course too, i can't take that because you need an SS number and i haven't got one yet, so that leaves me with no job now well i supposed i have learned a few things through all of this.
