Welcome to our Food Safety Leaders course.  In this course we go through important aspects of food safety - everything from safe food handling to proper hygiene.  

We've created interactive lectures, a detailed guidebook with  over one hundred pages and incorporated quizzes at the end of each section to help you learn as you go.  

After completing the course, you can choose to write the exam and become certified.  Our certification is currently approved in Alberta and we are in the process of getting it certified across Canada.   Contact us to find out if it is approved in your area.


Food Safety Leaders course is approved by Alberta Health and meets section 31 of the AB Food Regulation

About our Online course:

  • Includes 9 modules (see topics below)
  • Each module contains a section of the guidebook, presentation video and practice quizzes
  • Access to download our Food Safety Leaders Guidebook
  • Accessible 24/7 so you can learn in your pjs if you like
  • Ask questions anytime - Michael will answer any of your questions so you have the proper support to succeed
  • Exam is available at no extra charge.  It can be done virtually or proctored. Students are responsible to find their own proctor if they choose not to do the exam virtually - we can help with that too if needed!
  • We want you to succeed!  Our course graduates can ask Michael food safety questions anytime - it's like having access to your own Public Health Inspector.

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 public health degree and of course food safety and HACCP auditing and inspection. It's why I started Food safety leaders!
