QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering (RQF) – FS01

Our Food Safety in Catering – Level 2 Qualsafe Award (RQF) training is aimed at anyone working in a situation where food is prepared, cooked and served.

I recently completed a Level 3 Paediatric First Aid Course and I just wanted to tell you how amazing the trainer was throughout this course. He was informative, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to, he made the experience even better than I could of imagined and I would be more than happy to attend a course again in the future
