Get started in the food service industry with NIET’s food safety training course

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 consumer 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.

Furthermore, this training is required by law. Because it is so easy to cause a foodborne illness, a food handler training course such as SITXFSA001 Use Hygienic Practices for Food Safety (Food Handlers) is essential for those who wish to work in the food handling field. This training also makes you much more valuable to potential employers because it teaches you skills and knowledge that protect their customers as well as themselves. This course will allow you to take advantage of the many job opportunities available in the food service industry. 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.

At Nepean Industry Edge Training, we strive to create an effective training experience and take the fear out of training. We deliver programs and hospitality courses that change lives and open doors. We run this course with the SITHFAB002 Provide Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) over 1 day – why not do both?
