Further underlining its commitment to being an industry leader in talent development, as well as a knowledge centre and training provider for local industry players and stakeholders, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre will be conducting its first public ‘Food Handlers Training Course’ on 11 October 2016.
The training will be conducted by Mr Girbakran al Balachandran, a team member of the Centre’s Human Resource Training Department.
Rohizat Baharum, the Centre’s Director of Human Resource, said: “Girbakran is the first qualified Food Handlers Trainer at the Centre, and has trained and certified more than 2,400 food handlers internally since his accreditation.”
Topics to be covered during the course includes foundation of hygiene, factors contributing to food-borne diseases, personal hygiene and do’s and don’ts at the workplace; all of which are essential to remember and practice when handling food.
“Priced at RM60 (US$15) per person, the all-inclusive half-day ‘Food Handlers Training Programme Course’ is ideal for F&B and hospitality personnel, as well as for students from hospitality, hotel management, F&B or culinary courses, looking to enhance their knowledge in food handling. We will also be hosting additional training sessions on 18 October, 15 November and 29 November 2016. So, register now to avoid disappointment,” explained Rohizat.
The centre was awarded ‘Certified Training Provider’ accreditation in February 2016. Following the accreditation and MOH’s approval of the Centre’s facilities as a suitable training venue, it can now conduct food safety training, share experience and knowhow; gathered from over a decade of operations, to help boost the capabilities of the business events industry and enhance its service delivery.
