Food Safety Supervisor Course (Hospitality)
Food Safety Supervisor Course (Nationally Accredited)
Most businesses that require food to be handled must nominate a Food Safety Supervisor. This type of regulation is in place so that staff have the relevant skills and knowledge to safely handle food in their roles. This course is designed for supervisors to understand the requirements around handling food safely and knowing how to supervise other staff to do the same. Staff who want to be a Food Safety Supervisor will learn how to best manage OH&S in the kitchen and ensure strict procedures are in place so that all food served is safe to eat. This course should be completed by people in the Hospitality industry who want a course that provides them with knowledge that is directly transferable to their workplace.
NOTE: This course is also the correct course to select if you are required to do a re-certification of your Food Safety Supervisor Certificate (Hospitality). If you are in NSW, please be sure to add the NSW Food Authority certificate option at checkout.
You can start this course immediately.

Eliminating paperwork for a Food Safety Supervisor is important to us.
Our unique Workplace Supervisor Report is the only one of its kind in Australia. This learning platform feature allows you to experience a true 100% online course. It is especially important to note that there are no ‘hidden’ documents required to be downloaded. Our unique feature can literally save you hours of time! Don’t be fooled by other food safety providers who will make you download, manually complete and get signed, scan and upload a workplace observation report.
IMPORTANT FOR NSW STUDENTS: In order to operate as a Food Safety Supervisor within New South Wales you require a certificate from the NSW Food Authority. A NSW Food Authority certificate is required to be added at the checkout if you work in NSW, at an additional total cost of $35 ($30 is the price the government charges to provide the certificate + $5 for printing and postage costs). This will be listed under "Optional extras you may wish to consider" after you select to enrol in this course.
Students in other states/territories (VIC, QLD, SA, TAS, WA, NT, ACT) do not require any additional certificates as the Statement of Attainment gained in this course is all that is required to operate as a Food Safety Supervisor in these locations.
You need to be working in the food industry to be able to complete the assessment requirements
Our courses require a workplace supervisor report to be completed, which will provide evidence that you can demonstrate your practical skills in a workplace (your workplace supervisor may be anyone with at least 18 months industry experience (eg. boss, co-worker, employee) and not a close relative (ie. spouse, sibling, child, parent) as your workplace supervisor needs to be able to be objective.
If you are looking to start your own business (e.g. at home cake making or a food truck) and you have no current food industry experience, or do not have anyone that can act as your workplace supervisor, then our course is not for you. In this situation, we would recommend that you research a reputable company that you can complete a face to face food safety course with. There, you can complete simulated activities in a suitably resourced training space and be observed by a qualified trainer.

Information for people wanting to be issued with a NSW Food Safety certificate
In NSW, food safety requirements are set by the Food Act 2003 (NSW) and the Food Regulation 2015 (NSW). These Acts require that food sold in NSW is safe and suitable for human consumption and meets all standards set out in the Food Standards Code. Food Safety in New South Wales is governed by the NSW Food Authority which comes under the Department of Primary Industries. Together with NSW Health, the NSW Food Authority monitors food safety across the whole state. They make sure the food produced and sold in NSW meets all of the guidelines set out in the relevant state-based legislation.
Regulating & monitoring food safety in NSW
The NSW Food Authority is responsible for regulating and monitoring food safety across the entire NSW food industry.
Food safety training requirements
One of the key requirements in the NSW Food Act relates to food safety training. Every food business must have at least one designated Food Safety Supervisor per premises. This person is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day implementation of food safety in the workplace and must be trained in the right way.
Food Safety Supervisor training
Australian Institute of Accreditation has been approved by the NSW Food Authority to deliver NSW specific Food Safety Supervisor training, and the requirements are covered in our courses. This includes three key areas:
1. Safe egg handling
2. Allergen management
3. Cleaning and sanitising practices
When you complete training with Australian Institute of Accreditation, we’ll provide you with a NSW Food Safety Supervisor Certificate (sometimes known as the ‘Green Certificate’) on behalf of the NSW Food Authority. This must be displayed in the food business. It is an additional cost of $30 + postage and handling.
NSW Recertification or Renewal
Once you receive your Food Safety Supervisor qualification, the certificate is valid for 5 years from the date of issue. If your certificate is due to expire you’ll need to complete the NSW recertification course to receive re-certification issued by the NSW Food Authority. Contact us by phone or email to discuss. Food businesses have 30 working days to ensure their appointed Food Safety Supervisor renews their training and obtains a new Food Safety Supervisor certification.
