This is a follow-on course from our basic level requirements course and will help you understand different aspects of food safety and sanitation. It will teach you different programs that can be brought into effect within your operation.

From individual cleanliness guidelines that are applicable to everyone within the sanitation and safety operation, to the imperative role the manager plays in the operation, this free online course will quickly ensure that your food service operation will have a reputation for good cleanliness and sanitation. This course will teach you what to look out for when purchasing and receiving foods from an outside supplier, how to store food in the correct environment and how to prepare foods hygienically. Learn how to prevent and avoid accidents such as burns or cuts, and food borne illnesses by learning how they are caused.

This online course will be of great interest not only to a person who wishes to start their own food service operation or who is already working in one, but to anyone who wants to know more about preparing food in a sanitary manner.
