Level 3 Food Hygiene Course
As a supervisor or business owner, it is your duty to comply with the EU regulations on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, the Food Safety Act 1990, and the Food Hygiene Regulations 2005. This Level 3 Food Safety Course ensures that you comply with these regulations by providing you with the knowledge you need regarding food safety principles.
ABOUT THE LEVEL 3 FOOD SAFETY & HYGIENE COURSE
The Level 3 Food Safety Course, designed to teach methods for safe food management within catering businesses, is the highest level hygiene course a caterer can take.
By law, food handlers of every level must be appropriately trained in food hygiene and safety. Using a variety of learning techniques, this level 3 course aims to help students understand their vital day-to-day responsibilities, providing up to date knowledge on a range of topics including food safety law, correct cleaning methods, food temperature controls, and how to implement the basics of a HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points) food safety management system.
WHO IS THE LEVEL 3 FOOD SAFETY & HYGIENE COURSE FOR?
The Level 3 Food Safety & Hygiene Course is designed for managers and supervisors from all types of catering establishments including:
- Fast-food outlets
- Mobile food trucks & takeaways
- Schools & colleges
- Childminding facilities
- B&B’s & Guest Houses
The course is the ideal progression for anyone who has completed the Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene Course and are now taking on more food safety responsibilities within their businesses – or anyone who simply wants to further their knowledge.
The course is also recommended for catering businesses who wish to achieve a level 5 in the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (previously known as ‘Scores on the Doors’), along with gaining a better understanding of how to implement an effective HACCP (Hazard analysis and critical control points system).
If you are a food handler below manager or supervisor level, then the Level 2 Food Safety Course will be more suited to your needs.
We pride ourselves on delivering excellent training environments and comprehensive courses.
