As a Sidekick working in the food industry, you will be required to complete a Food Handlers/Safety course to work in any roles requiring the handling and cooking of food items. This includes roles like kitchen hand, catering assistant and cook/chef.
How do I get a Food Handlers Certificate?
If you do not have a Food Handler's certificate already, you can complete a free (non-accredited) course such as Do Food Safely.
Alternatively, you can complete an accredited course for a fee, such as Clear to Work.
We can also accept a Certificate or Diploma in hospitality- you can upload the course transcript showing the completed units, including SITXFSA001.
Sidekicker is not able to reimburse any costs associated with the course you complete.
How do I upload my certificate to my Sidekicker profile?
Once you have completed the course, you will be sent your Food Handlers certificate via email.
You can upload a copy of your results to your Sidekicker profile by following these steps:
