Who Should Attend?
Food handlers achieving this accredited qualification will have the necessary information to ensure food safety in any size or type of food manufacturing environment.
The qualification is designed for people who work, or intend to work in food or drink production. In addition to the fundamentals of food safety, candidates will gain an appreciation of the specific types of hazards, controls and monitoring associated with food manufacture.
This qualification has been designed to address the differences between catering and manufacturing environments, and will ensure staff are compliant with the requirement for businesses to train food handlers to levels commensurate with their work activities.
This Ofqual-approved qualification has been developed specifically for insertion onto the Qualifications and Credit Framework, with full support from Improve, the Sector Skills Council for the food and drink manufacturing industry in the UK. It is therefore fully compliant with industry and regulatory standards, as well as being recognised by environmental health practitioners, auditors and third party customers who require the manufacturer to demonstrate that they have trained staff to a recognised level.
This qualification is achieved by taking a one day classroom based course. It is assessed by a multiple-choice examination, where the candidates must answer atleast 20 out of 30 questions correctly. The examination will take a maximum of 1 hour to complete.
Open courses are inclusive of tuition, examination fees and a course handbook. Free follow up support will also be available from your tutor.
