    A: The 6-part video series totals about 30 minutes in length and each training section is followed by 4-8 multiple choice quiz questions. The entire training program should take on average of 40-60 minutes to complete.

  • Q: Can a student pick up where they left off in a prior training session?

    A: Unfortunately, this program WILL NOT save student progress. However, a student can by-pass the videos and simply take and pass the quiz questions to progress to where they left off in the training.

  • Q: Is this course the same as the ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited version?

    A: No. The eFoodLite program should be considered a precursor program to the more in-depth ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Basic Food Safety Course offered on our website.

  • Q: Do I have to pay for the eFoodLite Course?

    A: Nope! Our eFoodLite program is completely FREE.

  • Q: As a teacher, can I access records of my students to see who has completed the training?

    A: You can have them click on the Schools tab at the top of our main website and then scroll down to the eFoodLite section and click GET STARTED. Or you can send them this link www.cafoodhandlers.com/schools/lite-program.

  • Q: Can a student retroactively change the name they entered when beginning the program?

    A: The name the student enters when they begin their training will be the name printed on the certificate of completion when they pass all 6 sections. There is unfortunately no way to change the name provided by the student without at least retaking the eFoodLite quizzes in an entirely new training session.

  • Q: What if our school has blocked access to all YouTube videos?

    A: If your IT department has the ability to whitelist URLs, below you will find a document with all of our Youtube Training video links that you can provide to them. Alternatively, if whitelisting is not an option, below you will also find a PDF print out with all of our the video transcripts. Simply instruct your students to read through the material before taking each end of chapter quiz.

  • Q: As the teacher, is there a way for me to verify that all my students have completed the training?

    A: The only way to verify if a student has completed the efoodLite program will be by the certificate of completion they print out at the end of the 6-part training series. After a student has closed out of their web browser session, there is unfortunately no way to go back and retrieve the certificate of completion retroactively without retaking the course.

  • Q: Can a student upgrade their eFoodLite certificate of completion to an actual ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handlers Certificate?

    A: Our eFoodLite program should be considered more of an introduction to the important food safety concepts discussed in our ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handler training program. They operate completely independent of one another. If a student wants to earn their ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handler’s Certificate. They will want to start by setting up their individual training account here: eFoodHandlers® | Food Handlers | Get your Card
