Jointly developed by the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), this refresher course is designed to ensure sustained awareness on good hygiene practices by food handlers. Are you a food handler looking for a refresher course?  This course aims to refresh participants with knowledge and skills to observe food hygiene and safety while preparing or handling food.  This is a mandatory course for food handlers.  Candidates certified competent are recognized by SFA as meeting the licensing requirement to work as food handlers.

With effect from 01 Oct 2014, the refresher training requirement is as shown below:
