Food Safety Leaders Advantage

Best Learning Experience Guaranteed!

Yes, Food Safety Leaders is government approved to meet food safety training regulatory requirements.  But how is it different?

Glad you asked - here's what makes food safety leaders better than any food safety training program out there today:

  • Expert instruction by a Certified Public Health Inspector with decades of experience in food safety - (scroll down to learn more about the instructor - Michael Sidra)

  • Online training with personalised support!  Have a question or having trouble understanding a key concept? No problem!  You can contact the instructor directly or ask other students in the course!

  • Do you prefer to learn in-class?  Sign up for our in-class courses.  Courses are held in Edmonton and Calgary.    

  • We're a little biased, but we think our Food Safety Guidebook  is amazing!  Don't take our word for it, find out for yourself.

  • The exams are easy- well they're only easy for our students since our training materials are so well laid out and easy to understand...again a little biased here.

    Still need more reasons to sign up?  Okay, how about we throw in our 100% satisfaction guarantee!  If you are not satisfied with the course, just let us know before you take the exam and we will refund your money.  

    No questions asked.

In-class courses are also taught by Michael (a food safety and instructional design expert).

About Your Instructor

Michael Sidra

Michael Sidra


Working in food safety and Public Health for over a decade, I’ve seen plenty of unfortunate incidents where men, women, parents and children were affected by food-borne illness. Some were mild but others were a parents’ worst nightmare.

I witnessed food businesses destroyed and food business owners devastated.

If it wasn't a food safety incident that destroyed their business, it was the lack of planning or business knowledge that was the knock out blow. I found that many people, especially new Canadians, started a food business because they can cook - and oh boy can they cook! 

The problem is being a good cook doesn't make you a good business owner. 

So what does?  I've always been interested in answering this question.  What works? What doesn’t? What can I learn and what can I share to help others? 

It’s what drives me!. 

It’s why I devour books, attend at and speak in seminars, teach at Concordia University, why I completed an MBA degree, and a food safety/public health degree and of course food safety and HACCP auditing and inspection.

It's why I started LeanRhino and food safety leaders! 

I help people start and run amazing food businesses. Some of them, will change the world!
