ANAB accredits organizations that assure learning outcomes are met for food-handler training courses, evidenced by certificates. (ANAB doesn't provide the training and certificates, but accredits other organizations to do so.)

    Some states (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Illinois, New Mexico, Texas, and West Virginia) and local jurisdictions require that food handlers have a certificate from an ANAB-accredited organization. For a complete list of ANAB-accredited food-handler certificate programs, see:
