Food safety training courses

Whether you work in catering or simply want to gain new skills, we offer specialist food safety courses accredited by CIEH (the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health), which will show you how to produce food safely.

If you operate a food business you will be responsible for ensuring that anyone handling food are supervised, instructed and trained to a level appropriate to their duties.

The law does not require food handlers to complete a formal training course however, a certificate confirming they have passed a recognised course, is evidence of legal compliance.
