Introducing Managing Food Safety (MFS)


Food safety trainers now have access to Managing Food Safety (MFS), a nationally recognized, high quality training program. MFS introduces a variety of new measures to make food safety training more effective, including things like visual case studies that can help trainers to transcend language barriers, opportunities for experiential learning, and detailed regional information. Managing Food Safety has been enthusiastically received by health authorities and food safety trainers around the country, who have said that the program makes the job of trainers easier, and makes learning more enjoyable for participants.

The best choice for food handler certification

Managing Food Safety is our latest food safety training program designed to help food service and food retail management teams better guide and direct staff members to properly prepare and serve food. MFS will also assist in the implementation and integration of food handling policies, practices, and procedures into the workplace to ensure a safer, more compliant working environment. The program is nationally recognized, based on Food Retail and Food Services Regulation and Code (FRFSRC) standards and recommendations from both Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA).

The new program has been created with the intention of making instructing easier for trainers, and to make learning and participating in training programs more enjoyable and memorable. This has been done through the implementation of experiential learning exercises that not only increase information retention and make learning more enjoyable with hands-on activities and group work. Customized learning opportunities involving relevant case studies are also used in MFS, with interesting case studies for various types of food service. Finally, regional information has been taken into account in MFS, highlighting important legislations used in their particular province or territory and making it easy for trainers to customize training to better suit their local participants.

All new participant workbook for better learning outcomes

Featuring an all-new participant workbook, Managing Food Safety boasts all the information a participant needs, along with a whole host of visual case studies and infographics that help participants of all languages to learn and retain important information. The workbook also contains interactive elements like quizzes, activities, and other practical applications that will make the learning experience far more memorable and enjoyable, making the job of the instructor far easier than ever before. The MFS program generally takes 6-8 hours to complete in its entirety, including the lessons and 60-question exam. The materials are available in both English and French, with materials like infographics and online training being available in up to 8 different languages.

New online training options - Proctor-ME

The introduction of the Managing Food Safety program also saw the introduction of Proctor-ME, our brand new in-house web proctoring service. Proctor-ME is easy to use, coming in the form of a Google Chrome browser add-on - just install the plugin, turn on your webcam, and go. The new proctoring hub is managed by our team, ensuring consistent and reliable security and privacy measures that meet standards set by General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Proctor-ME is available 24/7, and is overseen by an unbiased and independent reviewers. For those without access to a webcam can use the MFS training program and the certification exam bundled together, with a Food Safety Market certified proctor who will sit down with the exam taker and invigilate the exam.
