Food Hygiene courses cancelled due to CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
In light of recent events and following the latest Government advice on the Coronavirus the programmed Food Hygiene Training Course for July has been cancelled.
Anybody who has booked a food hygiene course will be contacted to arrange a refund. We will continue to review the situation for courses on offer beyond July and will update the website accordingly. CIEH approved on-line training is on offer through a number of websites.
The Food Hygiene Regulations [(EC) No. 852/2004] require that all food handlers must be supervised, instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters appropriate to their work activities.
It is recommended that this training takes the form of an accredited food hygiene course such as the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering.
It is the responsibility of the food business operator to ensure this training is in place.
