Excerpts from FAQs of Indiana gov site:
Q #1: Which exams are allowable under the food handler certification rule?
A: The Rule is examination based and does not include a training requirement. The Conference for Food Protection (CFP) has contracted with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to review and approve programs and examinations. The Rule requires the passage of an examination approved by ANSI. At this time, there are three (3) organizations that have applied for and received certification using the ANSI process and they are as follows: (other organizations offer these exams on behalf of these organizations, so visit http://www.in.gov/isdh/21059.htm for the most updated list of providers)
Q #3: What if, upon inspection at an establishment, it is noted that the certification held by the designated food handler is not one that is ANSI approved as mentioned above? In other words, what if they don’t hold a valid certification?
A: It would be noted on the inspection report as a violation of 410 IAC 7‐22. It would be up to each individual local health department as to what timeframe for correction is given to the establishment. Penalties, if assessed, must be assessed in accordance with 410 IAC 7‐22‐19.
Q #8: Does the Rule apply to Temporary and Mobile Food Establishments?
A: Yes, unless exempted from the Certification Rule by menu.
Q #16: What if the certified food handler leaves the establishment – and there are no other food handlers who are certified at the establishment? How long do they have to come into compliance and have a certified food handler in their employment?
A: The establishment has 3 months to come in to compliance with the rule. (This applies to Temporary Establishments as well. This, however, will be difficult to enforce as they are, in most cases, transient between counties. This will require some discussion to determine the best method for compliance and information sharing between counties. We will update the answer to this question when a better method is in place.)
NOTE: Food establishments changing ownership or just beginning operation are given a bit more time to come into compliance than food establishments whose certified food handler terminates employment because it will normally take a new facility (or one under new ownership) a bit longer to familiarize themselves with applicable food regulations and it is more feasible that they might need a longer period of time to sign up and prepare for an examination. Whereas, an already‐operating food establishment is more likely to be able to simply designate another employee to become certified.
Q #33: What is the minimum age for food handler certification?
A: It doesn’t appear there are minimum ages for taking any of the approved exams – however, you would want to check with each exam provider for the specifics on this requirement.
