Food Handler Training

Food Handler Training

How up to date is your food safety knowledge?

All food handlers must have the necessary skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene.

The operator or manager of a business, organisation or community group must have skills and knowledge in food safety and food hygiene and they must ensure that all staff and volunteers have sufficient knowledge and skills in food safety.

Council recommends that all food handlers undertake formal training in food safety and food hygiene, such as relevant TAFE training course.

To assist with this recommendation Council supports food handler training by hosting training sessions at least twice a year within our district. The sessions run for approximately three hours and participants receive a certificate from TAFE SA after successfully completing a written exam.

For further information on future Food Safety Courses and location of training session, please contact council.
