Food Safety Supervisor

Course Description

This course aims to educate and equip students with the skills and knowledge to handle food safely at all stages including its storage, preparation, display, service and disposal. It requires the ability to follow predetermined procedures as outlined in a food safety program.

In some States and Territories businesses are required to designate a food safety supervisor who is required to be certified as competent in this unit through a registered training organisation.
