Georgians who want to produce and offer for sale shell eggs must obtain an egg candling certificate in order to sell their eggs at retail to the end consumer. Each person who will act as a candler of eggs offered for sale must obtain certification.
You can obtain an egg candling certification by attending classes and then successfully completing an egg candling examination. The exam tests both your knowledge and your practical ability to distinguish between grades of edible eggs and determine losses.
