Did you know that every month Sunshine Coast Council provides free food handler training to operators and staff of food businesses licensed by council?
Community Policy and Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said council wants to make understanding food standards a simple process for local businesses.
“These sessions provide a great opportunity to educate new business operators about food handling,” Cr McKay said.
“The training is also ideal for existing business to refresh skills or train new staff.
“The training aims to ensure that residents will enjoy fresh, healthy, high quality prepared food and beverages."
Cr McKay said the free food handler sessions are held every month in various locations across the region including Tewantin, Nambour, Maroochydore, Kawana and Maleny.
“The training session run for approximately three hours and participants are issued with a certificate of attendance,” she said.
“To register your interest for food handler training sessions in rural areas, please contact the Environmental Health Officer via council's customer service centre.
“We will be happy to organise sessions for areas where enough interest is generated.”
Please note that council is not a registered training organisation (RTO) and the course is not an accredited or approved course. Accredited courses are offered by local training providers – look under Training in the Yellow Pages or contact TAFE.
