Pathways – Level 2 – Food Safety Supervisor
After completing level 1, complete your level 2 food safety certificate, known as your Food Safety Supervisors (FSS) certificate. This is the course you will need to complete to be registered as the Food Safety Supervisor (FSS) in your venue. Each workplace requires at least 1 food safety supervisor to manage the food safety plan, venue compliance, and be registered with your local council. You will often need to send your local council a copy of your food safety supervisor’s certificate.
If you would like to complete both certificates at the same time, we have a government funded skill set, SITSS00051 Food Safety Supervision, which includes the level 1 food handlers’ and level 2 food safety supervisors’ certificate.
