Food Safety Training

NEW! Online Food Safety Courses

Confused by HACCP? Uncertain about allergens? Need a better understanding of food safety? If you answered yes, to any of these but don’t have time for full-day training then Perennia’s new online Food Safety Fundamentals courses might be right for you.


A trained and knowledgeable staff means an effectively implemented food safety program

Training is an important component to the successful implementation of any food safety program. An effectively implemented plan can address issues well before they become a problem or result in a recall and possible business disruption. It is imperative that everyone understands and carries out the best possible food safety practices in order to provide consumers safe, quality food. Proper training also ensures your company is able to meet their food safety scheme training requirements in order to achieve certifications.

Perennia offers a number of public training courses each year, some in partnership with NSF-GFTC. It is important to Perennia to make training accessible to Maritime companies. Many of these courses would not be available in the region if Perennia wasn’t offering them, and would require more time and money to travel to Ontario or Alberta.

If a public training doesn’t address your needs, we also provide private in-house training customized to your company. In 2016, we will also be offering and online self-directed training programs.

Some examples of training topics we are able to provide include:

  • Basic Employee Hygiene & Safe Food Handling
  • HACCP Foundations: Prerequisite Programs
  • HACCP Principles:Developing your HACCP Plan
  • The Basics of Internal Auditing
  • HACCP for Maintenance Personnel
  • HACCP for Sanitation Personnel
  • Verification, Validation and Reassessment
  • Basics of Writing your Procedure Writing and Controlling your Documents
  • GFSI Benchmarked Food Safety Schemes
