How will I receive my certificate?

FOODSAFE and MarketSafe certificates are issued by British Columbia's Regional Health Authorities.

If you haven't received your certificate 4-6 weeks after completing your course, contact the Health Authority responsible for issuing your certificate.

If you require immediate confirmation that you passed the FOODSAFE Level 1 exam before you receive your certificate, be sure to ask your instructor for a Temporary FOODSAFE Level 1 Certificate before you leave the class.
