About this Course
Food establishments are legally obligated to ensure that their staff have undergone the necessary safety and hygiene training that aligns with their responsibilities and associated risks.
This CPD-approved E-learning course is beneficial for individuals engaging in work experience within the food industry and those interested in gaining fundamental knowledge about food safety and hygiene principles.
Designed for individuals employed in catering settings who are not directly involved in high-risk food preparation or handling, this online course is also suitable for those working in environments where food is handled elsewhere or exclusively deals with low-risk foods. It is particularly well-suited for individuals working with pre-packaged or wrapped food items.
Complete it in just 2 hours to meet the UK’s mandatory training requirement for food handlers.
