Royal Society for Public Health - Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering

This qualification is designed principally for those who are, or intend to be, food handlers working in catering. A food handler is any person, in any type of food business, who handles food, whether open or packaged (food includes drinks and ice). This qualification may also be appropriate for people whose work requires them to enter food premises, e.g. equipment maintenance engineers, off-site business owners/managers and delivery personnel. The aim of this qualification is to provide a basic knowledge of food hygiene.

Holders of this qualification will have knowledge and understanding of the importance of food hygiene, associated food hazards, good hygiene practice and controls based upon an awareness of food safety management systems. This is important to understanding and maintaining good practice in the handling, processing and preparation of safe food.

This is a short programme usually delivered over one day with a 40 minute "multiple choice" exam at the end of the day.

Please remember that Public Health has advised that all Jersey hospitality businesses should be following EC legislation in relation to Food Hygiene training which states that all handlers of open food should be trained to a minimum level of CIEH level 2 or equivalent.

This RSPH Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering course satisfies this criteria in full.
