Food Safety Supervisor Course Details

The NSW Food Act 2003 was introduced as a measure for reducing food borne illnesses within the hospitality and retail food industry by improving food handler skills and knowledge.

The NSW Food Safety Regulations stipulate that hospitality businesses in NSW need to have a designated Food Safety Supervisor within their organisation. The Food Safety Supervisor is responsible for ensuring that their premises engage in best practices regarding safe food handling in roles such as chefs, kitchen staff, owners/managers/supervisor and food safety supervisors.

This Food Safety Supervisor course will provide you with all the skills and understanding needed to be a successful Food Safety Supervisor, including:

  • Legislative requirements
  • Understanding food safety policies and procedures
  • Identifying and controlling hazards
  • Personal Hygiene
  • ANZFA guide to food safety standards
  • Food Safety monitoring

Training Program

  • All students must have valid photo ID on the day of training.
  • Free lunch is included.
  • No third-party reporting is required so full certification is completed within the 1 day training.
  • Due to Food Safety Supervisor being a Government Initiative, students will have to complete ALL training hours required. Insufficient ID and being over 10 minutes late (including from lunch breaks) will automatically deem the student ineligible to start the course on that date. Students will need to contact our office to rebook and process any relevant rescheduling fee in line with our policy.

Food Safety Supervisor Assessment

Within the 6 hours of the accredited course, students will be required to complete multiple choice questions, short answer questions and a practical assessment in English throughout the day. Students will receive lunch breaks which is not included in the 6 hours and will be permitted to eat the food prepared in class. Students are offered multiple opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge and skills throughout the course to deem them competent across the unit.

There are 3 components to this Food Safety Supervisor program:

  • Theoretical training in the classroom (Multiple Choice & Short Answer)
  • Practical training in the kitchen (preparing food at our venue)
  • Assessment for both knowledge and skills

This Food Safety Supervisor course combines plain English, videos, photos, and questioning to ensure all learners can have the best possible chance at comprehending the required knowledge and skills.

Assessments MUST be completed in English and with no further assistance. If you believe you will need assistance due to your Language, Literacy or Numeracy skills, please contact our office on 02 9232 1010 to discuss your training needs.

If a student is not successful in completing all assessments satisfactorily, they will need to rebook the Food Safety Supervisor course at a $50 NYC Fee.

General Course FAQs

Is my course tax deducible?

In Australia, course fees are tax deductible if they are directly related to your current job, either maintaining or improving the skills required or being a condition of your employment. The course must be linked to your current employment and not just for future job opportunities. Expenses reimbursed by your employer are not deductible, and you can only claim for out-of-pocket costs.

For definitive guidance, please consult a tax professional or refer to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) website to ensure compliance with tax regulations.

When is my booking confirmed?

Your booking is confirmed once we receive full payment of course fees. Unfortunately there are rare occasions where the course will sell out prior to you finalising payment.  In this situation a member of our customer service team will get in contact to organise an alternate training date.

What are your payment methods?

Payment can be made at the time of booking using either a credit card, EFTPOS or cash. Invoices and acceptance of company cheques is by prior arrangement only.

Can I pay my package in installments?

Unfortunately we cannot offer this service, full payment of course fees are required at the time of booking. The good news is that we try to always offer value for money and keep course fees affordable, so you know that you are always getting good value, especially with our package deals which offer reduced prices!

I want to book in multiple staff and/or want a company invoice?

We can book multiple people at once and create company invoices, even for individual students. Please just email our bookings team –

Please include the following information; the course, location and date you wish to enroll them in, full names and unique emails of those who will attend and the company's legal name, address, ABN and contact.

What if I have trouble with written/spoken english?

Most courses will permit a student to bring a friend to interpret for them during training. If you do need assistance, we ask that you contact first before booking your course so we can advise if there are any restrictions. For example, Forklift training requires students to complete all assessments in English.

If the course permits, you may bring a friend along to the course or, alternatively, you can phone the National Translation service to book an interpreter. Visit the Immigration website for more information about help with translating.

What is your COVID-19 Policy?

Following NSW Health Guidelines, TCP Training implements Policies and Procedures to help keep our community safe, for more information click here.

Can Centrelink pay for me?

What you need to do is register with your local Job Network Agent. Your Employment Consultant will make the booking with us on your behalf and arrange payment with us directly. Unfortunately Centrelink does not pay directly.
