Course Objectives

Level 1 of the Food Safety Course covers basic food safety principles for food handlers. As these food handlers level up and take on greater responsibilities in the kitchen, they can upskill by taking up Level 2 of the Food Safety Course, which will equip them with the know-how to conduct food safety checks for their specific work areas.

This program is designed to provide individuals involved in both retail and non-retail food establishments with essential knowledge and skills for adhering to food safety and hygiene protocols. The course emphasizes the importance of understanding the rationale behind these practices to ensure effective implementation and compliance within licensed food premises.

Individuals involved in the selling or preparation of food in establishments licensed by the Singapore Food Agency must complete and pass the Food Safety Course Level 1 (FSC Level 1). To maintain their certification, they must complete a refresher course before the end of the fifth year following their initial certification and every tenth year after passing their most recent refresher training.

The Singapore Food Agency advises food handlers to pursue FSC Level 2 after achieving FSC Level 1, enhancing their ability to perform food safety checks in specific areas. Although FSC Level 1 is a prerequisite, there is no expiration for FSC Level 2. However, if used to meet the refresher requirements, it will adhere to the same renewal schedule as the FSC Level 1 Statement of Attainment.
