Level 1 Food Safety and Hygiene Course, Food Allergy Awareness Training Course, and the First Aid course are accredited by Continuous Professional Development (CPD). The certificates, awarded upon successful completion, can be used to log your hours against.
All courses usually take between three to six hours each to complete, depending on the speed of learning. Learners do not have to complete all the training in one session as progress is recorded throughout and the training can be paused and resumed in our learning management system at any time.
The courses are aimed at food handlers and anyone working in a role that involves contact with food, or the management of such people. The First Aid course is also suitable for people and businesses looking to learn new first aid skills or refresh their existing first aid knowledge.
There are no entry requirements for this course.

If learners do not achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.
Learners will be able to download a digital certificate on completion of each course. This can be printed, and we suggest you keep it for your records.
