About Us

Who We Are

Probe It Food Safety is striving to be the leader in providing education on preventing food-borne illnesses, to the food service sector.

In August 2016, Probe It Food Safety transformed the food handler certification platform. We introduced a new service, which was the first ever in North America – secured, proctored online food handler certification exams!

We were the first to innovate and introduce remote proctors 24/7 for taking the food handler exam. This meant our customers across Canada were able to login and take a food handlers exam – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere and anytime!

Probe It Food Safety’s programs and services have been developed by the experts in the food service industry – Public Health Inspectors. The food handler certification program offered by Probe It Food Safety allows for food handlers to become certified conveniently while providing the best possible learning options. Our trainers are Certified Public Health Inspectors with previous work experience in Toronto Public Health, York Region and Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit.

Our core values are excellence, integrity, quality and respect.
