The article reports on the adoption of an online training program through FoodHandler by Penn State University and its Commonwealth Campuses. With the program, students are given an authorization code to log into a Web site. To use the program, program development manager Jennifer Garvin buys a license, which is good for 99 people. The initial leadership training was done with a limited number of the staff, but the speaker agreed to train some of the managers.
