Want Your Food Handlers certified with Online Food Safety Training?

Having certified food handlers is the only way for your foodservice business to avoid the risk of reputation damage brought on by failed health inspections and causing customers to develop foodborne illness or food poisoning. In the majority of Canadian provinces and territories, businesses are required by law to hire staff with proper food handler certifications.
The problem is often that business owners are too busy running their business to ensure that food handlers receive the food safety training they require to get the job done right. You need a complete solution that will provide your food handlers with a nationally recognized food safety training course to give you and your customers peace of mind, while still allowing food handlers to complete an engaging and informative course at their own pace.
