Julia W - Marrickville- Food Safety Supervisor online

I call it "PJ training" because most of it I completed in my pyjamas. Being a shift worker, it was very easy to access and convenient because I could start and stop anytime, to fit around my work and family commitments. I could also replay sections if it didn't sink in the first time.  Thank you so much! Warm regards, Julia

Rick S - Potts Point- FSS online

I have worked as a Chef for more than 20 years - including Italy, France and London - I thought I knew all there was to know about Food Safety, until I did this online FSS training, which was very comprehensive and informative, it makes so much sense and a lot has changed since I started in the industry - I actually wasn't looking forward to it, but I am so glad I have had this excellent update and the support when I had a couple of queries, was prompt and very professional  - Rick S - Executive Chef

Excellent course, very informative and would not hesitate to recommend this online course to colleagues. We have already started to implement and place greater focus on the learning from the course.

Hi and thankyou for your quick response to my assessment.

I found it fun to do and it has been a real education which has also affected the way I run my kitchen at home.

So many thanks to all at CFT for your patience, very happy with your prompt service.

Peter C - Pyrmont- Food Safety Supervisor training

Just a bit of feedback :

I thought the course would be "jumping through the hoops".

To the contrary, I found it challenging, informative and interesting (despite being in the industry a LONG time).

Oh, and all my dealings with CFT were smooth and professional.


Adrian T - Cooranbong

As an accountant by trade, I actually enjoyed working through this online Food Safety Supervisor course... The information is well delivered.

Stuart K - Sth Coogee

You're a superstar mate. Thanks for all your help

Androulla A - Horningsea Park

I have learnt so much doing this course.. I believe everyone who wants to own or have a business should do this course...


Kevin G - Double Bay

Many thanks for your training and advice.

I have just finished a meeting with our head Chef and we have taken all on board. We have already initiated a schedule and action plan for the FSS and venue.

I must say it was a great 'refresher' and the stringent standards that must be met and adhered to.

I would like to add from the 'get go' that initial contact to your office and staff has been professional and helpful on all levels, it is a daunting requirement and was made easier by the smooth running of your office.

Roxanna J - Blayney

Thanks so much, I really enjoyed learning through this online Foo Safety Supervisor course.

Harvey J - Wollongong

Being in the kitchen all day, then sitting in a classroom at night or on my day off wasn't for me. I would rather use this time to catch up with friends or a round of golf! I was able to complete this training at a time to suit me and I didn't need any fancy equipment or super computer skills, it was very easy to understand and follow. Thanks Centre for Training Guys...Harvey
