Food Handler Certification

Food Handler Certification 

This course is recommended for anyone who serves food to others, especially those who serve food to the public.

This course is approved under legislated food training requirements across Canada. All provinces have different regulations for food training requirements and you will receive province-specific content based on your location.

Please read the information on how to register under the 'registration' tab.

 

IMPORTANT!

After finishing the online component of the Food Handler Certification course, you are required to take a supervised exam (included with the course). Each person who takes a food safety examination in Canada must provide photo ID for identification purposes, and be supervised during the exam by an online proctor.

In order to successfully take the supervised examination online, you are required to have a webcam and microphone. This is a government requirement if not taking the final exam in-person.

If you do not successfully pass the final exam, there is a $20 re-test fee, not covered by COMPASS.

Certification is valid for 5 years.


As a requirement of CLSD COMPASS funding, SARC must report on training satisfaction rates. As a result, we ask that all Learners complete individual program evaluations immediately upon finishing any training, as well as within 3-4 months of completion. Your feedback will also be used to ensure that SARC continues to provide the best training possible.

Please read the following instructions before you register!

There are three registration buttons - one for SARC Members who are eligible for COMPASS, one for SARC Members who are not eligible for COMPASS, and one for nonprofit organizations that are not SARC Members.
