Food Handler Basics is a free, non-accredited, online training course developed by the Food Authority. It covers the basic knowledge requirements for food handlers in Standard 3.2.2A of the Food Standards Code. It is not mandatory and is one way businesses can meet their obligations.

The training features 8 modules, including a test at the end, and takes about an hour to complete.

Before you begin

Food Handler Basics is not the same as Food Safety Supervisor training.

You must answer all questions correctly in the test and provide your email address to receive a certificate of acknowledgement.

Please note: A certificate is not a proof of skills. Food handlers must also be able to demonstrate they know how to handle food safely.
