Food Handler Safety Training Card Program – COVID-19 Update

90163396_10158336544586349_706582730770481152_oWe know that many of our TAM Card® students also need their Food Handler Safety Training Card (also know as Health Card) to work. We’re helping the Southern Nevada Health District spread the word that they have temporarily stopped issuing cards.

The Food Handler Safety Training Card (Health Card) program is suspended until May 1, 2020. Food Handlers will NOT be required to have their cards with them and new employees or employees that need to renew their cards will be able to temporarily work without cards. Food establishments will NOT be assigned demerits for food handlers without cards during this period.

Please note: TAM CARD® TRAINING IS STILL AVAILABLE ONLINE AT THIS TIME. The TAM® of Nevada office is also closed, but you may take the course online at www.tamnevada.com. When you’ve finished your online training, we can email your employer to let them know you have completed all requirements except picking up your card. If you need this service, please contact us at tamsupport@tamnevada.com and include your name, order number, employer name and email address.

TAM® of Nevada office temporarily closed for COVID-19

ANNOUNCEMENT: Effective March 18th, TAM® of Nevada will close our office for 30 days. This temporary measure is in place to comply with Governor Sisolak’s order to temporarily close all non-essential businesses in an effort to further stop the spread of COVID-19.

ONLINE TAM CARD® CLASSES ARE STILL AVAILABLE 24/7 at www.tamnevada.com. You may still complete your online training on our eLearning portal, from your own computer, tablet, or smartphone device. Customer and technical support will be available during our temporary office closure via email at tamsupport@tamnevada.com.

TRAINING EXPIRATION DATES ARE BEING EXTENDED. We will temporarily suspend the 90-day expiration date for anyone that still needs to take their in-person final exam while our office is closed. If you need an extension, please contact us at tamsupport@tamnevada.com, and our friendly office staff will assist you.

WE CAN INFORM EMPLOYERS OF ESSENTIAL WORKERS IF THEY HAVE COMPLETED TAM® TRAINING. If you are a worker at an essential business which will remain open, such as a grocery store, we can e-mail your employer to confirm if your official TAM Card issued by TAM of Nevada is valid and up-to-date. If you’ve finished your online renewal or TAM Card® training but are unable to visit our office during the temporary closure, we can still email your employers to let them know you have completed all requirements except picking up your card. If you need this service, please contact us at tamsupport@tamnevada.com and include your name, order number, employer name and email address.
