Frequently Asked Questions

General

I’m a sole trader. Do I still need Food Hygiene Training?

Regardless of the size of your business, if you handle or prepare food that is consumed by others then you need to comply with the Food Hygiene Legislation.

What training do I need to provide for my employees?

The Law requires that any food handlers are instructed and supervised to a level which is appropriate for their duties.

A supervisor will need a higher level of training than the staff they manage for example. Although the law does stipulate that formal training is required, a certificate showing your employees and supervisors has passed a recognised course is one way of showing you have complied with the law.

What are the minimum or maximum number of delegates on each course?

There are no minimum requirements and you can train as many delegates as you like with online learning however for effective onsite training the recommendation is one trainer to ever 12 delegates. Therefore if you need say 20 people training all at once at your premises on a particular day we would send two trainers in this instance.

Can you deliver onsite courses at weekends?

Yes we can run courses to suit your business needs and work with you to avoid disruption to your business.

I did a food hygiene course 4 years ago. Do I need to do another?

Yes. It’s recommended that you keep up to date every three years to maintain food safety standards and to ensure awareness of current legal requirements.

The courses differ in length. When you browse each course the duration is shown in the course details.
