Learning that meets your needs
At AIFS, we understand that every student learns differently and we want to help to meet your training needs.
At the Australian Institute of Food Safety we believe that online learning should be fun, engaging and effective. With that in mind, we have developed our online courses to maximise the learning outcomes for our students.
Our courses are broken down into small, manageable sections which comprise of presentations, interactive tasks and quick quizzes - all designed to improve learning and keep students interested.
The assessment comprises of three parts - online quizzes, online case studies and a downloadable observer report and declaration. The observer report must be completed by someone (usually in your work place) who has observed you completing food safety related activities. Typically the course takes around 3-4 hours.
What's more, you don't even need to sit at a computer or laptop to complete the course. By using the latest eLearning technologies, our courses now work on most mobile tablet devices. Typically the course takes around 3-4 hours.
If you are concerned about the language, literacy or numeracy requirements of this course, or if you require additional support during the enrolment and course delivery process then we encourage you to contact us in order to discuss your individual needs with a student support representative.
At AIFS, we understand that online training doesn't suit everybody and that some people simply learn better in a more traditional classroom based environment. We are pleased to offer training to meet these needs.
We can arrange training to be delivered at your workplace, or at a classroom local to your business location, and we have qualified professional Food Safety trainers to deliver this.
