Frequently asked questions

Are the e-learning courses accredited or approved?
Our e-learning courses follow the syllabus of our externally-accredited face-to-face training courses and are endorsed by the CPD Accreditation Group.

Will an e-learning course be enough for me to meet legal requirements?
Yes.
However, it is important that food safety is ‘commensurate with the role of the food handler’. This means that the level of training must relate to the job of the food handler, helping them to carry out their role safely.
Before choosing a course, you should check the syllabus of the course and consider the following

  • What is your role within a food environment, or what do you plan to do?
  • What food safety experience or food safety qualifications do you or your staff already have?
  • What types of food will you be handling or how much contact with food is involved in your role?
