Food Safety Training and Certification

The New Brunswick Department of Health requires certain staff in licensed food premises to have up-to-date food safety training and certification. While many courses are available, some are not recognized by the Department of Health.  As a food handler, having this knowledge greatly reduces the risk of food contamination and, therefore, the spread of foodborne illness.

This education is also very useful for people not working in the food service industry, such as those who prepare meals at home and care for others.
