This is an e-learning course which is accessed online. You can access the course 24/7, and there is no time limit on how long you take to complete the training material.

In logging in to our secure Learning Management System (LMS) to access the course, you can leave the training partway through, safe in the knowledge it will automatically return to the same point the next time you log in to continue. 

On completion of this course and assessment you will understand:

  • Why food safety training is important

On average we find it takes people between 2 and 3 hours to complete the training, depending on your individual learning speed. An advantage of e-learning is that unlike a classroom session, you can complete the training at your own pace. At the end of the course you will complete a short assessment to ensure you have understood the learning content. The required pass mark is 75% but don’t worry, if you don’t pass first time you can review the course and try again at no additional cost.

Upon successfully passing the assessment you will be issued a City & Guilds accredited certificate.
