Putting Theory into Practice

With Always Food Safe's Training we don't just teach you the theory, we show you how to put this into practice in your day to day life.

Our experts take apart the theory and break it down into real life situations and give you ideas in regards to implementing it into your role.

Interviews with Industry Experts

Our Food Protection Manager training is packed full of interviews with industry experts from some of the biggest foodservice establishments in America.

Getting their experience, insight and knowledge is invaluable as an educational resource; they see Food Safety in a way that most people don't even think about. 

Fun & Engaging Content

We wouldn't wish 8 hours of PowerPoint slides on our worst enemy, nevermind people we are trying to help. That's why we use video learning and try and keep the content as fun and engaging as we can.

The purpose of this ANSI Accredited Food Protection Manager Training is to provide managers the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to oversee safe storage, preparation and service food.

All learning is mapped against the 2017 FDA Food Code.

Video Learning is broken up into 23 chapters that last no longer than 20 minutes each. With it being 100% online, you can complete the training around your lifestyle.
