Food Hygiene Training
Here at the Training Terminal, we specialise in…yes, you guessed it: food hygiene training! Our dedicated team of food hygiene experts knows a thing or two about which level of training you need in your role, the legal requirements surrounding food safety in the United Kingdom, and how long it takes to complete each level of food hygiene training.
In many cases, it’s unlikely you’ll need food hygiene training up to Level 3 unless you work in a managerial or supervisory role. For most food handlers who work in Catering, Retail, and Manufacturing, a Level 2 course should cover your training requirements. However, we always advise you seek advice from your local authority if you’re unsure about which training you need.
Time taken to complete: Typically, around 1 hour for an online course such as Level 1 Food Hygiene Training.
Basic food hygiene training such as our Level 1 course is suitable for staff or volunteers who work in a food-related role but do not handle or prepare raw food. This would include waiting staff, for example, or food delivery drivers and checkout staff.
You can get a Level 1 food hygiene training certificate online in as little as an hour if you take our excellent Level 1 Food Hygiene Training course.
Time taken to complete: Typically, between 1 and 2 hours for an online course such as Level 2 Food Hygiene Training.
If you handle or prepare food in your workplace, you have a legal duty to take Level 2 food hygiene training. This course is suitable for a majority of roles within the Retail, Catering, and Food Manufacturing industries.
You can get a Level 2 food hygiene training certificate online in as little as 1 to 2 hours if you take our excellent Level 2 Food Hygiene courses.
Time taken to complete: Typically, a 2-day face-to-face course (10+ hours of training).
It is recommended that all food environments should have at least one person trained to Level 3 food hygiene. Due to the in-depth nature of this training, this course must be taken in a face-to-face environment and there is no online option.
