Food Safety Course - In-person

This course is designed to ensure food service establishments are in compliance with the Ontario Food Premise Regulations. Part VI, Section 32 of the Regulations states every operator of a food service premise shall ensure that there is at least one food handler or supervisor on the premise who has completed food handler training during every hour in which the premise is operating. BCHU also recommends all employees of food service establishments complete this course.

This course is based on the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care - Public Health Division, February 2018 Manual "Food Safety: A Guide for Ontario's Foodhandlers" and the Ontario Food Premises Regulation 493/17.

Students are required to achieve 70% to pass the exam. The food handler certificate is valid for five years in the Province of Ontario.                   

Students can come to the Brant County Health Unit to purchase a print version of the Food Safety Manual.


The Health Unit serves all the people in our community. For some, the cost of our programs may create a financial difficulty. If this is the case, please click on “request deferred payment" when you register.

This course is held at the Best Western Hotel, 19 Holiday Dr., Brantford, Ontario.
