FENLANDER: Food safety training course will cover storage, handling and causes of food poisoning

SAFE storage and handling of food, the legal requirements and the most common causes of food poisoning are among the topics that will be covered in a one-day training course in December.

It is designed for anyone involved in cooking or serving food to the public, including staff in schools, nurseries and care homes as well as people who work in shops, restaurants and takeway outlets.

The “Level 2 Food Safety Training” course is scheduled for Friday December 14, 9.15am-4pm, at Fenland Hall, March. It will be led by Fenland District Council’s environmental health team and include group work, DVDs and practical demonstrations.

Successful delegates on the Level 2 Food Safety Training Course are awarded a nationally recognised certificate from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health Officers.

Places cost �64 per person, including lunch, but businesses that buy one can get a second half-price.
