Abstract

This study evaluated a three-hour Web-based training course on food safety for entry-level food handlers. The course contains ten modules, and each module is followed by a short quiz that must be passed in order to move on to the next module. The entire course is followed by a final exam, which is the instrument used in this evaluation. Subjects (n = 653) were recruited and randomly assigned to experimental or control groups. Subjects were drawn from throughout the United States. At the beginning of the study a pretest was administered to all subjects on-line. Intervention subjects were asked to complete the Web-based course, and comparison group subjects took only the surveys. All subjects completed a posttest to evaluate change in and retention of food safety knowledge, skills, and behaviors. Funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
