Anyone can be a Food Safety Supervisor. There may be more than one Food Safety Supervisor for each food business.
It is recommended that Food Safety Supervisors complete training and obtain a statement of attainment issued by a registered training organisation (RTO) like CFT for the relevant food sector where they work.

The QLD Food Safety Supervisor Courses are assessed in two parts:

1. A set of online multiple-choice questions at the end of each section to test your knowledge, AND
2. A simple skills observation report carried out in the workplace.

There are certain things that we can’t see you doing through your computer – such as washing your hands. That’s why we need you to ask somebody that you work with, or someone who works in the food industry, to complete a skills observation report.

Before you begin studying with CFT, you can check out all of our courses, fees and CFT Policies and Procedures online.
