Specialized training for you and your team.

Public Food Safety Training Courses

  • The chance to network and discuss food safety strategies with peers
  • Easy-to-use resources, check lists, fact sheets and more, developed for professionals like you
  • Certificates of Attendance, allowing you to stay up to date with requirements and professional development
  • a 10% discount when you register 3 or more people from the same company (some exceptions may apply)
  • … and more!

Perennia’s E-learning Sessions: Food Safety Fundamentals

Perennia understands that it can sometimes be difficult to make it to in-person courses for food safety staff and small processors – work still needs to be done! That’s why we developed fundamental e-learning sessions. Sessions take an average of two hours or less and can be completed in the comfort of your home or office in small manageable chunks of time. Introductory Skills for Creating your Food Safety Program is the first course in the program and is a prerequisite for the others. Once you’ve completed it you can take any of the others in whatever order appeals to you. There are seven courses in total. Click here to head to the page with the session overviews and fees.
