Register Now for DEH Food Hygiene Training

The Department of Environmental Health (DEH) is resuming its Food Hygiene training for personnel in the food industry. Registration is now open for new employees and for those whose 3-year certificate has expired.

Training sessions will be held on Wednesdays between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. from September 6 to December 6, 2023 at the Red Cross facility in Grand Cayman. However, training days may differ somewhat for the Sister Islands as courses will be facilitated on demand.

The one-day Basic Food Handlers’ training equips participants with sufficient knowledge of handling, preparing, and delivering food safely to prevent food-borne illness caused by food-borne pathogens and other contaminants.

Business owners and food business operators are reminded that the DEH requires all personnel handling food to be trained and certified. Failure to comply with this DEH requirement may result in their business license NOT be recommended for renewal. Certification is valid for three (3) years, and persons who want to continue as food handlers must renew their certification once it expires.

A registration cost of $15 per person covers all materials and fees should be paid at DEH headquarters, located at 580 North Sound Road, between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Interested persons on Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are asked to call 948-2321 to make arrangements. Participants who are registered and have already paid for the course will be given priority.

For additional information, please contact the DEH at 949-6696, email us at dehcustomerservice@gov.ky , visit the DEH’s website at www.gov.ky/deh/  or message our Facebook page at https://bit.ly/3LEK55q
