Food Safety Training Program
Do you ever cook for your family, for your friends or for clients? Then you may be interested to know that Canadians report between 11 and 13 million cases of foodborne illness every year. Are you confident that your knowledge of food handling is up-to-date?
The Eastern Ontario Health Unit offers a food safety course available to all food handlers. The training covers safe food handling, foodborne illnesses, bacteria, cleaning and sanitizing methods, and food allergies. The course is based on the Food Handler Training Protocol produced by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. There are several options to achieve certification:
- Option A: $35.00 – Workshop, manual, exam and certificate
- Option B: $35.00 – Home-study with manual, exam and certificate
- Option C: $35.00 – Online training, exam and certificate
Workshops can also be arranged at your work location, based on a minimum of 10 participants. All course options are available in either French or English.
