Course certification

Course certification starts with a integrated approach to food protection learning.

To ensure certified and competent food protection staff in industry and government, Safe Food Canada is working on international standards that will guide course certification for academic and training programs nationwide.

In concert with the International Food Protection Training Institute (IFPTI), Safe Food Canada has forged a partnership that will facilitate collaboration between industry, academia, private training providers as well as regulatory bodies. This collaboration will allow us to develop, deliver and evaluate the effectiveness and consistency of food protection learning that is certified in line with national and international standards. In turn, this enhances our global position as a source of safe food.

Certification will be overseen and audited by an independent authority. Learning products and services will be assessed based on national standards and requirements.
