Get Smart Serve Certified With FoodSafetyMarket


Getting your Smart Serve certificate is a breeze with FoodSafetyMarket. Whether you’re getting your entire team certified or just training yourself, we can deliver everything you and your employees need to ace the Smart Serve exam. 

The Ontario Smart Serve accreditation is mandatory for any organization or individual who wants to serve, sell, or handle alcohol in the province. But passing the program doesn’t have to be a hassle. 

FoodSafetyMarket makes training easy - delivering the course online so trainees can learn from anywhere, on any device. Our Smart Serve program, available to all businesses and individuals in Ontario, guides students through the entire course, setting you up for success in the final exam.


Smart Serve for Businesses

Smart serve for businesses

If you’re an Ontario business that sells or serves alcohol, you need to get your employees Smart Serve compliant. And, in some cases, even staff who already have their Smart Serve certificate will need to reapply. 

Thanks to a recent change in the provincial regulations, Smart Serve certificates now expire 5 years from date of issue. This means anyone who got their certificate before July 1, 2018 will have to reapply in June 2023, and anyone certified on or after July 1, 2018 will have five years before they need to retake the test.

Don’t panic if this means you need to train dozens of staff at once or employees from multiple locations. FoodSafetyMarket streamlines training so you can get everyone certified from a single platform, while giving them the ability to move through the course at their own pace. 

Our Smart Serve program can be delivered through from our server, providing everything your employees need to log on and learn. 

Your employees will love the ease and convenience of FoodSafetyMarket’s learning portal. 

Our virtual classroom format ensures that no-one is left behind. Courses are delivered entirely online, with users creating their own accounts so they can study at a time that suits them and keep track of their progress. When your trainees are ready, they take Smart Serve’s proctored exam and receive a digital certificate. It’s that easy! Check out our Smart Serve course for businesses here.

Looking to train your employees in-house? Our team can help you turn your company into a classroom with our in-person programs for staff who don't want to learn online.
