What is a "Certified NFSTP Trainer?"
"Certified NFSTP Trainers" are food safety trainers that have been approved to deliver the National Food Safety Training Program in classroom settings, and invigilate NFSTP certification exams on paper or online.
These trainers must present the materials and exams in a manner that is consistent with our accreditation in all provinces and territories across Canada. This ensures that courses taught by our trainers will meet or exceed the requirements for any given province or territory, and that the presented material is the same for all participants.
