For many food businesses in Australia, it’s a legal requirement that at least one Food Safety Supervisor is employed for each premises from which the business operates. This online course meets all legal requirements for Food Safety Supervisor training and is valid across all states and territories.

If you’re based in New South Wales, you’ll need a NSW Food Authority certificate as well as your Food Safety Supervisor Statement of Attainment. Food Safety First is approved to issue NSW certificates and this can be selected as an option when purchasing the course. Other states and territories do not have this additional requirement.

Our Food Safety Supervisor course is offered for the following industries:

  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Health & Community
  • Food Processing
  • Transport & Distribution

Refer to the Units of Competency tab for more information.

The general outline applies to anyone in Australia who is NOT in NSW. The course outline for NSW is slightly different to meet local requirements.

The assessment for Food Safety Supervisor (Level 1 & 2) is comprised of the following parts:

Part 1 - Lesson Quizzes
At the end of each lesson you need to complete a multiple choice quiz. Once you have scored 100% you are able to move onto the next lesson. You have five attempts at each quiz but don't worry if you use up all your attempts - just get in touch and we can help you out at no extra charge!

Part 2 - Case Studies
There are two case studies to complete in the course (five in NSW, see below for further information). The purpose of these is to check that you can apply what you've learnt to a real-life situation. Simply read the text and answer a series of multiple choice questions about the best way to handle the scenarios. 

Part 3 - Reading Activity 
There is a reading activity on potentially hazardous foods. Simply download the PDF from the course page and then complete the multiple choice quiz. 

NSW Only:
In 2015, the NSW Food Authority announced some additional requirements for NSW Food Safety Supervisor training. Currently there are four key focus areas determined by the Food Authority - allergen management, safe egg handling, cleaning and sanitising practices, and Food Act offences. If you are seeking a NSW FSS certificate you must complete the four key focus areas.

If you are seeking NSW Food Safety Supervisor recertification, this course is appropriate and sufficient.

Part 4 - Observer Report / Declaration
There are some things we can't see you doing through your computer - such as washing your hands. That's why we need you to ask somebody that you work with or someone who works in the food industry to complete an Observer Report. This is a form that you ask someone you've worked with (past or present) to complete about tasks they've seen you doing. The form can be completed online or downloaded and filled out manually.

Food Safety Supervisor (Levels 1 & 2) is available for a number of food industries. When you complete your student registration, you will provide contact information for a nominated observer and select your industry from a dropdown menu. 

The industry you choose determines which Observer Report will be issued and the units of competency that will be displayed on your Statement of Attainment upon completion of your course.

The units of competency for each industry are as follows:

Retail (accepted in all states and territories):
SIRRFSA001 Handle food safely in a retail environment
