Frequently Asked Questions

  • QMust all my staff start on a level 1 award?
  • ANo, Some companies like to start on a level 1 and progress through to level 2 or even level 3 food safety, but there is no need to do that. You should look at the individual’s job role and start the worker on the appropriate level. Some workers will therefore start on level 2. You cannot start workers directly onto a level 3 food safety however.
  • QMy company makes sausages, is the level 1 food safety course appropriate for them?
  • AYes. It is quite sufficient. Sausages are not eaten raw (usually!) and are therefore classed as low risk.
  • QAre there any translations for this course?
  • AYes, please look on our website, we are always pleased to undertake translations for sufficient numbers.
  • QQ. How long do I have to pass the certification?
  • AOnce you have paid your course and received your access codes, the course will be available for one year. If you do not pass the certification within this period, the course expires.
