Food Safety Now (FSN), a leading licensee for Registered Training Organisation specializing in Nationally Recognised Food Handling Certificate Courses, announced their newest course offerings today - Food Hygiene/Handling Courses and Food Safety Supervisor Courses (FSS) for Health and Community Services, Hospitality and Food Processing Industries in Australia.
With a vision to expand career opportunities in the field of Food Handling & Food Safety Services, FSN owner Joanne Ballantyne launched a series of nationally recognised Food Handling Certificate Courses that can be done by correspondence, online and on-site training in groups. Joanne is an industry expert in Food Handling, and on May 10th, she also appeared on Channel 9 in a National Current Affairs Program, an episode focused on the Food & Hospitality Industry. The company is geared towards providing quality and easy to understand training material for all those who want to gain Food Handling Certificate in Australia.
Today, anyone, who is interested in working with Food Processing, Packing and Serving in Australia, must possess a national board recognized Food Handling Certificate that satisfies 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. Acquiring a Food Handling Certificate is important not only to comply with the State mandate but also to prove that the person has been educated in safe food practices and possess the necessary skills to become employable in the Hospitality Industry.
FSN’s Nationally Recognized Food Handling Certificate Course is broken down at 2 levels: Level 1 Food Handling Course is meant for those employees who are working in a kitchen, restaurant, hotel, or any kind of food retail outlet, under supervision. The Level 2 Food Handling Certificate course builds on the principles learnt in Level 1. On successful completion, the participant qualifies to be a Food Safety Supervisor anywhere in Australia. The best part is – now prospective individuals can take Level 1 and Level 2 Food Handling course from anywhere and at any time they want.
The introduction of the new Online Food Handling Certificate Courses is good news for many prospective individuals, who are motivated to start their career in Food Handling & Safety Services. Amber McCarthy said that the course was actually a "lifesaver" for her career. After completing the food safety hospitality course, she could continue as a waitress in a restaurant. McCarthy stated, "My employer asked me to do a level 1 food safety hospitality to continue working as a waitress in their restaurant. Doing this course by correspondence was great because I could do the course in my own flexible timings. The staffs were really helpful and patient to help me understand even the trivial parts of the course. It was something new I had done and loved to receive my certificate immediately upon completion of the course."
From high quality training material to assessment tasks, industry-based case studies and a wide range of questions, each of FSN’s Food Handling Certificate courses provides comprehensive knowledge about how to master the skills and tread a career in Food & Hospitality industry.
