Like most business decisions, selecting the right Food Safety Supervisor course is an important investment that deserves careful consideration.

A quality Food Safety Supervisor course should:

  • Offer a consistent, well-rounded education in food safety management, including theory and practical knowledge
  • Include up-to-date units of competency that align with current legislation
  • Comprise a practical component that allows you to demonstrate your skills, as required by law
  • Provide exceptional customer service to improve your learning

Further Things To Consider

Some online courses offered by training providers may not contain a practical component. Practical experience is key to perform the role of Food Safety Supervisor successfully - and it is a legal requirement for this course. If you choose a substandard course, you may find your skills are not up to industry standard.

NSW Food Businesses

The NSW Food Authority requires all Food Safety Supervisors in NSW to hold qualifications specific to NSW in addition to the standard Australian qualification.

If your business is registered in NSW, the course you choose should address the requirements of the NSW Food Authority. The Australian Institute of Food Safety is a NSW approved provider.
