On this course, you will learn about:

  1. Your personal responsibility and the law
  2. How food gets contaminated
  3. Good standards of personal hygiene
  4. Food Storage and cleaning

We make sure that all of our training courses are rigorously planned and prepared in order to comply with the relevant teaching regulations.

Customised training sessions

Here at Vital Workplace Training, we provide our training courses with a twist. Every session we put on is customised in order to meet the needs of our trainees. There’s no point teaching the exact same session to people who work in different settings, so we make sure that you will only learn what’s relevant to you.
