The Food spoilage, hygiene and safety course has been specifically created for secondary school food teachers throughout the UK.
The usual cost for this course is £45. However, we have made 300 free access codes available to celebrate 30 years of Food - a fact of life! Be quick though, it will be first-come-first-served and the free offer will end on 31 January 2022.
The course covers:
- Module 1: Food spoilage
- Module 2: Food poisoning
- Module 3: Food safety
- Module 4: Food preservation
- Module 5: How we use microorganisms
Each module includes a short test, providing you with feedback on your progress. On successful completion of a final assessment, a personalised certificate is created. (The final assessment may be repeated). The course will take approximately 2-3 hours to complete but does not have to be completed all at once. You can complete the course at your own pace – there is no time limit.
