The Level 1 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering course provides the required level of training for those working in catering businesses dealing with low risk foods or working in Non Food Handling roles.
The course provides comprehensive training on safe food handling techniques which ensure that staff do not pose a risk to themselves or others due to poor food safety practices.
Food Handlers in roles which involve preparing or handling high risk foods should take a Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene course. This course is available on our dedicated site Food Safety UK.
Visiting Environmental Health Officers (EHO’s) generally require Food Handlers to take a Level 2 Course in order to comply with the training requirements of the current Food Safety Act.
The estimated duration of this course is 2 hours. Candidates may log in and out of the system and therefore do not need to complete the course in a single sitting. Learner course progress is automatically saved, so that they may return to the course whenever they wish and as a result course completion is entirely in the hands of the learner.
