FREE Online Food Safety Training

fresh food ingredients


Goondiwindi Regional Council is assisting food businesses to meet their obligations under the Food Act and Food Safety Standards by providing free access to the I'M ALERT Food Safety online training program.

For food businesses, it is a great opportunity to provide all of your staff with free training that would otherwise cost you money and a great deal more in time. This program will provide you with free and unlimited access to food handler training that can be undertaken in your own time and at a location of your choosing. The program will assist you and your staff to gain valuable skills in food safety and hygiene, which will help to ensure that only safe and suitable food, is produced at your place of business.

I’M ALERT is also available to everyone in the community no matter whether you are actively involved in food handling as a volunteer for service groups, schools, community groups fetes, markets, events or simply wanting to ensure food safety in your home. This is a convenient way for all food handlers to achieve the required skills and knowledge.

The program has been developed by qualified and experienced Environmental Health professionals and is equivalent in scope to a two-day consultant delivered course. The interactive, logical and easy learning format includes an entertaining presentation.

Users will be asked to register a log in. This will enable you to complete the training over multiple sessions if you choose and log back in at the point you left off at. A training acknowledgement certificate can be printed and be kept as a part of your food safety records. Please note that completing I’m Alert Food Safety online training does not fulfil the required competencies for a Food Safety Supervisor.
