Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

The American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute offers voluntary certification to food service workers such as certified restaurant server and certified kitchen cook. Food service workers almost always are required to obtain health certificates from the state Department of Public Health that certify they are free from communicable diseases, as shown by physical examination and blood tests. This is required for the protection of the general public.
