FOODSAFE Level 1 • XOCH 0850
Research shows that 95% of people who took FOODSAFE Level 1 five years ago or later would not pass the exam if they wrote it today. So, as of July 29, 2013 all FOODSAFE Level 1 certificates issued in British Columbia will have a five-year expiry date. Existing FOODSAFE certificates will be valid until July 29, 2018 and at that time you will have to redo the course. Do you want to work in the food industry? Are you working in the food industry but want a greater understanding of safe food-handling practices? You will learn about the purchase and storage of potentially hazardous foods, personal hygiene, the causes of foodborne diseases, and how to maintain a sanitary food service operation. Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive Health Unit certification.
