Why do I need to do an Observer Report?

Observer Reports are an important part of the assessment process because they show us that you can apply the food safety knowledge that you have learned in your course in a practical situation. By demonstrating food safety skills in a work environment, you can perform the required tasks without having to come to a classroom and show us.

Simply provide the name and contact information for your nominated observer when you’re filling out your student registration. Once you complete your registration, your nominated observer will receive an email with options to print the form or complete it online.

Once you've completed all of the online components on the course page and we've received your completed Observer Report, we can begin processing your assessment and issue you with a Statement of Attainment.

Please note that it’s a legal requirement that you are able to demonstrate the tasks listed on the observer report and we do check that each one we receive is authentic.
