Food Safety Awareness – FS02

Our Food Safety Awareness course is aimed at anyone who requires induction training before starting to work with food, staff who are low risk food handlers, and those who wish to update their food safety knowledge.

“On the whole, I can not fault either the course or the trainer (Danny). I now have a greater understanding of different types of extinguisher, the types of fires they should be used for and how to operate them. 10/10”


“Danny was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. Held our attention very well. 10/10. Thanks!”
