ADVANCE Advantage - Leader in Food Safety Training in BCThe “ADVANCE Advantage”

ADVANCE Continuing Education has been B.C.’s #1 Choice for FOODSAFE training since 2003 and is a leader in Red Cross First Aid training for many good reasons:

The Best Instructors!

We believe that Public Health Inspectors have the ideal combination of education and experience for teaching FOODSAFE, so all our instructors are also working Certified Public Health Inspectors.  After at least two years of intensive schooling in food safety, our instructors each have years of experience inspecting all types of restaurants and food-related businesses, looking at good and bad food-handling practices – exactly what the FOODSAFE Program is all about. We love entertaining students with these stories! Our First Aid instructors have had years of active experience in life-saving roles and are eager to pass the knowledge they’ve acquired onto others.

The Most Classes in the Most Locations

Our in-demand Certificate courses are often needed quickly. We schedule multiple classes each week in 11 convenient Metro Vancouver locations so you can receive your certification as soon as you need it! Also offered in convenient, central locations on Vancouver Island and cities throughout BC.

The Lowest Prices

Our prices are the lowest anywhere. Together with our superior instruction, service and convenience, the value is unbeatable.

Informative and Entertaining

Stories of food-handling practices found while inspecting restaurants – both good and bad – ensure that the FOODSAFE classes are entertaining as well as informative. Instructors’ experiences related during our other courses also keep those students laughing as they learn. Our First Aid instructors also use many fascinating real-life stories and examples to bring their lessons home.

Excellent Service

Our commitment to excellent overall service is another important reason that ADVANCE Continuing Education has been B.C.’s #1 choice for FOODSAFE training since 2003 and is a leader in First Aid training.
