Welcome to the Food Safety First Principles for Food Handlers Program

The First Principles certificate program, available online and in a classroom setting, provides food handlers with the knowledge and skills they need to safely handle foods for human consumption. Successful completion of the program assures food managers, regulators and trainers that the certificate holder has completed a basic course in food safety. The First Principles course and assessment is based on substantial review and analysis of the current state of knowledge, regulations, and requirements in the field of food safety as reflected in the FDA Food Code, professional literature, and industry practice and is recommended for people involved in the preparation, handling, serving and displaying of food.

The First Principles program is comprehensive and covers the following areas:

  • Introduction to Food Safety
  • Contamination and Cross Contamination
  • Time and Temperature Control
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Cleaning and Sanitizing
  • Potentially Hazardous Foods/Time Temperature Control PHF/TCS
  • Pests

National Registry’s First Principles for Food Handlers program is a certificate program, not a certification. Read about the difference between certificates and certification .
