New South Wales RESIDENTS

The NSW Food Authority has a requirement for a certificate to be issued in the New South Wales Food Authority format.

How will this course help me?

Should your NSW Food Safety Supervisor certificate be close to expiring and you wish to continue to be the Food Safety Supervisor for a hospitality food business in NSW, you will need to undertake this recertification training course with Food Safety Australia. We are a Registered Training Organisation approved under the Food Safety Supervisor Program in NSW.

A NSW Food Authority Food Safety Supervisor certificate expires five years from the date of issue. The expiry date is printed on each certificate. To be issued with a new Food Safety Supervisor certificate, Food Safety Supervisor certificate holders are required to renew their training at an approved RTO such as Food Safety Australia.

IMPORTANT

To be eligible for this course:

You will need to provide us with a copy of the NSW Food Authority Certificate that you currently hold.

For business owners

Food businesses that have an appointed Food Safety Supervisor whose Food Safety Supervisor certificate is due to expire will need to enrol their Food Safety Supervisor in recertification training with an RTO approved under the Food Safety Supervisor program.

When a Food Safety Supervisor holder’s certification expires, a food business has 30 days to ensure:

  1. The Food Safety Supervisor renews their training within 30 working days
  2. Another Food Safety Supervisor with a current qualification is appointed

The Food Safety Supervisor recertification training ensures an individual has knowledge of food safety requirements, the skills to manage food safety risks in the workplace, and can meet the essential units of competency. The training cycle of five years supports a highly skilled and compliant hospitality and retail food sector in NSW.

If you are not currently working within the industry and do not have immediate access to an operational commercial kitchen then you may be able to volunteer for one or two shifts at another workplace to complete this component. Simply ask around in your local area. It could be a café, bar, restaurant, bakery or deli etc.

The practical activity is a brief knowledge based assignment, where you demonstrate the application of your learning to a workplace situation. Food Safety Australia is able to structure this activity, to suit participants not yet employed in a working food environment.
