Register for a Food Safety Course



This decision has been made in keeping with the recommendations regarding social distancing and group gatherings as we work to minimize the potential impact of COVID-19 in PEI.  All those currently registered for upcoming courses will be receiving an email outlining their options.

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. A copy of the participant guide booklet is available in Arabic, Chinese, Korean, French, 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 employee present in the food premises (when food is being processed) has successfully completed an approved food hygiene training program.

Are you a volunteer with a non-profit organization or service club?

Your non-profit organization and/or service club is required to have at least one organizer or volunteer present during food preparation who has completed the Food Safety Training or has a Certificate of Attendance from the Volunteer Food Safety Presentation offered by Environmental Health.

I require a Food Safety Training Certificate. Where is the next course being held?
