Pilot TELC /Buchan NH Safe Food Handling Test run Thursday 5th September 1pm • Set up room for best quality viewing and listening and had another practice run with new camera and microphones. • Registered with Jabber used the program between the 3 of us to test our accounts We Identified that due to our internet connection and up to date IT equipment we were able to use the program and connect without any difficulties. We required our IT technical support Robyn Cummings to iron out some of the problems and what we needed to successfully conduct the course. Malcolm joined the team at Buchan for a trial run We created a flyer to promote the class to local residents and advertised the class in our Neighbourhood House Newsletter delivered to all households in our region (220 copies) to also access the demand for SFH in our region.
