You must have an original, valid Foodhandler Permit issued by the Tulsa Health Department. There are 2 options and both require passing a THD test: 1) Attend a THD class, or 2) take the THD Waiver Test.
Taking an internet online training course from a third party does not qualify to get a THD permit. You will still need to pay the $13 ($15 effective March 1, 2017) fee and take the THD Waiver Test to receive a valid Foodhandler Permit.
Beginning July 1, 2016 please make NOTE of the changes below. These are also listed in the 2016 Schedule (July – December):
- Waiver Test is available every Thursday at 3:00 p.m.; arrive 30 minutes early for registration.
