The Food Handler Certification Program provides an opportunity for food handlers to learn about food safety. Food handlers learn about public health legislation, the role of the public health inspector, foodborne illness, safe food handling methods and food premises sanitation. The information allows the food handler to successfully complete the examination to obtain a food handler certificate meeting the Ontario Ministry of Health's food handling training protocol and also the City of Toronto's requirement for mandatory certification of food handlers. More importantly, the information assists the food handler in storing, preparing, cooking and serving safe to eat food.
The Online Training Manual is currently being updated and will be posted soon.
