Staff at the Health Unit have been made aware that taking a full day off work is not always convenient for all members of the food service industry. To accommodate, the Health Unit is launching a Home Study Program. A workbook is provided with comprehensive information and study questions that one can work on at home. Upon completion, a proctored exam must be scheduled with a Public Health Inspector.
