During the second eight weeks, students have the opportunity to participate in a practical hands-on placement where they will use their new skills and abilities in the field in either a Food Service or Healthcare Facility.

The Food Service Worker Certificate Program includes the following courses:

  • Role of the Food Service Worker
  • Food Safety & Sanitation
  • Communication & the Food Service Worker
  • Quantity Food Preparation
  • Introduction to Nutrition
  • Nutrition in Health Care
  • Food Handling Training

Students who successfully complete the program will receive their Food Handling Certificate as approved by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and Toronto Public Health. The program is a mandatory requirement for students pursuing careers in long-term care dietary environments. After the program, students can go on to begin careers as food service workers, dietary aides, dietary consultants, and more.
