Food business operators are required by law, to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene commensurate with their work activity to enable them to handle food safely
Hilary Finney is a registered trainer for RSPH and CIEH and has a registered training centre.
Many organisations are required to instruct volunteers and staff in food safety who are not from a catering background.
Hilary can apply the courses to a diverse range of individual and businesses having spent over 30 years in the food industry including school meals service, contract office catering, hotels, restaurants and outside catering .
Why use a trainer and not an online certification process?
Staff trained in a class room situation can ask questions, interact and through discussions other situations can be introduced to enable students understand topics in more detail. Online courses cannot offer this training but Hilary can offer short courses in induction training, refresher courses, allergens or valuable assistance to improve your hygiene rating
