Food Safety Supervisor & FSS Recertification

Food laws in NSW require businesses in the hospitality and retail food service sectors that process or sell food at the retail level, to appoint at least one trained Food Safety Supervisor (FSS).

This course is designed for students who have been working in the hospitality or retail food sectors and have successfully completed the Food Handling Level 1 course and hold SITXFSA005 Use hygienic practices for food safety, or SIRRFSA001 Handle food safely in a retail environment, and also for students who already hold a FSS certificate that is due to expire.

This course will equip students with the skills and knowledge in the key focus areas of cleaning and sanitising, safe egg handling and allergen management.

When an FSS holder’s certification expires, a food business has 30 days to ensure:

  • The FSS renews their training within 30 working days.
  • Another FSS with a current qualification is appointed.

Certificates are valid for 5 years.

Upon successful completion of assessment task(s) students will be awarded a Statement of Attainment for unit: SITXFSA006 Participate in safe food handling practices.
