Can food services-related tertiary-level certification count towards food service PWM training?

For new hires or existing employees who have attained food services-related tertiary level certification or qualification, such as from recognised culinary institutes or institutes of higher learning or who were in Work-Study programmes in food services-related courses, they will be considered to have met PWM training requirements.

These qualifications or certifications will have to be mapped to at least one of the Technical Skills & Competencies (TSCs) for food handlers and two of the TSCs for non-food handlers as detailed in Annex C of the Tripartite Cluster for Food Services Report.

Please refer to Annex A for the list of institutes of higher learning courses that meet the training requirements.
