It is designed to meet the requirements of various regulations in food preparation and health and safety. The course covers regulations, preparation, storage, infections, cross contamination, reporting, PPE, date marks, reporting illness and basic first aid in the kitchen. The certificate is valid for 3 years and can be taken online or in the classroom with one of our approved instructors.

This is a level 2 course for general food hygiene training for people working directly with food.  We also offer a level 1 course that covers the basics of food safety.
