Food Safety Course

Food premises operators in PEI can register online for food safety training. A certified public health inspector will present current information on food hygiene, preparing food safely and preventing food poisoning. The one-day workshop will be offered at various dates and locations throughout PEI.

The food safety course is offered in English only. Copies of the participant guide booklet are available in Chinese, Korean or Punjabi. Please request translated booklets at least two (2) weeks before the course date.

Am I required to take this training course?

The annual licence to operate a food premises requires that at least one person in your food service operation be trained in food safety.
