eFoodLite – Introduction to Basic Food Safety
Teachers - Train your students for FREE
About the Training
Are you looking for a basic food safety training course for your students? Our eFoodLite program is an
introductory 6-part video training series that covers all the basics of Food Safety. The program takes
approximately 45 minutes to complete. Each video ranges from 2 to 8 minutes in length and is followed by a brief
4 to 8 question end of chapter quiz. Students must pass each quiz with at least a 75% or better before moving on
to the next chapter.
After a student has completed all 6 sections, they can download a certificate of completion to show they
successfully completed the eFoodLite Basic Food Safety program.
This series will cover essential elements that food workers need to know to keep food and patrons safe. We will
demonstrate safe food handling techniques, and even speak with some industry experts about proper food handling
and why it is important.
- The Importance of Food Safety
- Health and Hygiene
- Temperature Control
- Cross Contamination
- Cleaning and Sanitizing
- Food Worker’s Top 10 for Protecting the Public
To start training, send your students to the following URL:

Then, direct them to click the “Get Started” button on the right side of the page.

This program is NOT to be confused with our ANSI National Accreditation Board – Accredited
Basic Food Safety Couse available in the paid packages.
The certificate printed at the end of this training is
NOT a valid food handler’s certificate to meet state
or regulatory requirements. You must upgrade to one of our paid programs for students to earn an
ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited food handler’s certificate.
The 6-part video series is hosted on You Tube. If your school does not allow student’s access to You Tube, we
also offer a text version of the content. A link for this is located below the videos within each of the 6

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How long is the course?
A: The 6-part video series totals about 30 minutes in length and each training section is followed by
4-8 multiple choice quiz questions. The entire training program should take on average of 40-60 minutes
Q: Can a student pick up where they left off in a prior training session?
A: Unfortunately, this program WILL NOT save student progress. However, a student can by-pass the videos
and simply take and pass the quiz questions to progress to where they left off in the training.
Q: Is this course the same as the ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited version?
A: No. The eFoodLite program should be considered a precursor program to the more in-depth ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited
Basic Food Safety Course offered on our website.
Q: Do I have to pay for the eFoodLite Course?
A: Nope! Our eFoodLite program is completely FREE.
Q: As a teacher, can I access records of my students to see who has completed the training?
A: Our eFoodLite program does not store student data. However, we have added a certificate of completion
to the end of the training that your students can save and print out as proof they completed the course.
Q: Where can my students access the eFoodLite course?
A: You can have them click on the Schools tab at the top of our main website and then scroll down to the
eFoodLite section and click GET STARTED. Or you can send them this link
Q: Can a student retroactively change the name they entered when beginning the program?
A: The name the student enters when they begin their training will be the name printed on the certificate of
completion when they pass all 6 sections. There is unfortunately no way to change the name provided by
the student without at least retaking the eFoodLite quizzes in an entirely new training session.
Q: What if our school has blocked access to all YouTube videos?
A: If your IT department has the ability to whitelist URLs, below you will find a document with all of our
Youtube Training video links that you can provide to them. Alternatively, if whitelisting is not an
option, below you will also find a PDF print out with all of our the video transcripts. Simply instruct
your students to read through the material before taking each end of chapter quiz.
Q: As the teacher, is there a way for me to verify that all my students have completed the training?
A: The only way to verify if a student has completed the efoodLite program will be by the certificate of
completion they print out at the end of the 6-part training series. After a student has closed out of
their web browser session, there is unfortunately no way to go back and retrieve the certificate of
completion retroactively without retaking the course.
Q: Can a student upgrade their eFoodLite certificate of completion to an actual ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handlers Certificate?
A: Our eFoodLite program should be considered more of an introduction to the important food safety
concepts discussed in our ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handler training program. They operate completely
independent of one another. If a student wants to earn their ANSI National Accreditation Board-Accredited Food Handler’s Certificate.

quiz on paper they can definitely do so. Here are some resources to help you with that:
