Manufacturing Course Overview

EU Regulation 852/2004 Hygiene for Foodstuffs requires Food Businesses to make sure that any staff who handles food are supervised, instructed and trained in Food Hygiene in a way that is appropriate to the work they do.

This module is a self-study course (formerly known as Foundation or Basic Food Hygiene) and maps to Industry Standards in Food Safety and Hygiene as published by Improve Ltd, the Sector Skills Council for the Food and Drink Manufacturing Industry in the UK. This course will benefit anyone working in food processing, manufacturing, food assembly, packing and food storage. It allows every manufacturing business, regardless of size, to provide all staff with first class training at a fraction of the cost and disruption of classroom based training.

Upon completion of this online training material learners will sit an online test and on successful completion, will receive a City & Guilds Accredited Level 2 Certificate in Food Safety and Hygiene for Manufacturing meeting the legal training required, which must then be applied to work situations.

We now offer two certificate options for our Level 2 Food Hygiene and Safety Courses. You can choose either the self-printed certificate to reduce costs, or if you prefer we will print and post a high quality certificate that carries a foil authorisation seal. For posted certificates, if completed successfully Monday-Friday before 12:00 midnight, certificate will be posted next day. Weekend completers will have their certificates posted on Monday.

The training and test usually take between 2 to 3 hours to complete (depending on learning speed), which is equivalent to 6 hours face-to-face group training. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark, and, if necessary, may attempt the test 3 times at no extra cost, having revisited the training material. If learners have not achieved the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting Learner Support.

On completion of this course learners should understand:

  • Why food hygiene and safety is important
  • Their personal and legal responsibilities
  • The impact of food borne illness
  • How food becomes contaminated
  • How to prevent contamination through good hygiene practices
  • How to control contamination through safe temperatures and storage from raw material and goods inwards through manufacturing, packing and distribution to customers
  • How to control food safety hazards at critical control points using a HACCP based Food Safety Management System
