Online Learning with the FSAI

The FSAI Learning Portal is available free to all food businesses, and has been designed with specialised content that will assist food businesses in keeping up to date on food safety. There is a wide variety of content, including eLearning modules, webinars, short videos and explainers on a wide variety of topics.

The portal is designed to supplement the food safety training being provided by food businesses, with easily incorporated learning materials, so that they can be used in a flexible manner:

  • as part of a food safety course
  • inclusion in staff meetings
  • self-learning at a time and pace that suits the learner.

Some of the eLearning modules included in the new Learning Portal include:
