Online sampler training course

Persons who undertake sampling for local shellfish programs are required to be accredited as approved samplers under the NSW Shellfish Program and complete reaccreditation every two years.

The NSW Food Authority has worked with the University of Tasmania to develop an online sampler training course as a more efficient method of delivering the training. This allows samplers to complete the course at a time that suits them.

The fee for the online course is $50 for an initial accreditation and $25 for a reaccreditation (GST inclusive). The fee can be paid by the sampler or can be funded through the local shellfish program (at the discretion of the local shellfish committee).

What do I need to do?

  1. New samplers can become accredited by completing the online training course.
  2. Once the course is completed, the certificate must be sent to food.nswsp@dpi.nsw.gov.au for registration in our system.
  3. Existing approved samplers must complete the online training course by 1 December 2020.
