For the first time, Delegates can take part in Certification Courses at Vision Quest. In Foodsafe Food Handling, participants will learn safe practices in the food industry including food borne illness, receiving and storage of foods, preparing food, serving food, and cleaning and sanitizing. The goal of Emergency First Aid and CPR, which is recognized by all levels of government, Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health, and most employers, is to preserve life, prevent further injury, and promote recovery.
