Food safety training

Complete a food hygiene or food allergen course.

All food handlers must be trained in food hygiene to a level appropriate to the type of work being done. Food business owners wanting to achieve a 'very good' rating should have regular refresher training for staff and have evidence to show that training has been completed.

In-house courses - delivered by local officers

Online training isn't for everyone and has limitations.  We now offer local food hygiene courses at very affordable prices.  Trainers are experienced food safety officers, the same people who inspect food businesses and issue food hygiene ratings.  As well as receiving face-to-face training you will also benefit from:
