Add to your existing skills! Get qualified with NIET’s food safety program for the Health/Community Services Sector!

Each year, millions of people become sick, and many of these need to go to hospital with foodborne illnesses. Foodborne illness is the result of consuming food or beverages contaminated by germs. It may be that the food is left out at room temperature for too long, not cooked properly, or handled by someone who was sick or had germs on their hands. It takes only a simple error to cause someone to become ill, so educating food handlers is essential to protect the client as well as the handlers themselves. When you are properly trained to handle food safely, you improve safety in your place of work and reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses and outbreaks.

Because it is so easy to cause a foodborne illness, a food handler training course such as HLTFSE001 Follow basic food safety practices is essential for those who wish to add to their skills while working in the community services or health sector. This training also makes you much more valuable to potential employers because it teaches you skills and knowledge that protect their clients as well as themselves. This course will allow you to take advantage of the many job opportunities available in the Aged Care, Childcare, Disability and Health industries. Employers who are looking to hire new staff will see well-trained food handlers as more desirable and be more likely to hire them than candidates who do not already possess this training.
