Online Food Handling Certificate

All Australians working with, processing, packing and serving food must have a food handling certificate. This certificate must satisfy the requirements set by the NSW Food Authority, Queensland Food Act 2006, Queensland Food Regulation 2006, Victorian Food Act 1984, and Food Standards Australia & New Zealand.

The purpose of a food handling certificate is to prove that you have been educated in safe food practices. This includes awareness and control of cross contamination, prevention of food borne illness and hygiene.

While it may seem that most of this is clearly common sense, the food handling certificate course delves quite deeply into each topic. For example, do you know what solution is best to clean a cutting board after you chop chicken? Can you rinse the rag you used to clean the cutting board and then wipe the counter with it? What is the correct temperature to store farm eggs? Can you source local meats for your kitchen or do the farms you purchase from have to follow certain regulations? What is your duty of care to patrons? The food handling certificate course answers these and many more questions.

The food handling certificate course is the prerequisite to the food safety supervisor course. Those that go onto obtain their food safety supervisor certificate can act as kitchen managers and supervisors, ensuring that all staff members are following the rules for a clean and hygienic kitchen as stipulated in the food handling certificate course.
