Food Safety Training (NZQA Units 167 and/or 168)

Click here to display COURSE CALENDARS


Many District Councils now require people working with food (either preparing, serving or working in the production of food items) to hold Unit 167, and supervisors of food workers to hold Unit 168.  Check with the Council in your area to find out what their specific requirements are.  We can help you to achieve either one or both of these units.

Food Safety Course Options:

To suit your needs, we currently offer 3 ways to do Food Safety training with us:


Unit 167 - Half day Course ** $150 (incl. GST): a fun and interactive half day course that covers the basic principles of practices that result in safe food.  People accredited with Unit 167 are able to maintain effective person hygiene when working with food, prevent cross-contamination and measure, record and act upon the temperature of high risk food. 

In the Wellington, Petone & Carterton half days courses are run on a regular basis.
