Food Safety Courses

Broxbourne Borough Council is registered with The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) to run a foundation level award in food safety.

This course is suitable for all food handlers requiring a basic level of food hygiene understanding. The course consists of a minimum of eight hours' training, with a short test at the end of the course. Candidates who pass this test are awarded a foundation level certificate. 

If you wish to attend a course please complete and return a booking form (see documents panel to the right), together with the fee for each applicant. Alternatively, payment can be made over the phone by contacting the Environmental Health on 01992 785511.

The Borough of Broxbourne offers its own refresher training if you already have a certificate. After three years you may require a Refresher Certificate, for which there is a fee (half day), with specific requirements for those who attend. The certificate you achieve will be issued for the Borough and not the CIEH. Please contact Environmental Health for further details.

On receipt of your completed booking form and fee, and subject to the course being attended by at least ten delegates, you will be sent a  'Food Safety Principles and Practice' workbook containing relevant food hygiene information that will be covered during the course.

To get the most out of the course and to allow you to identify particular areas of interest or those areas you would like to know more about, it is suggested that you use this booklet as reference material before attending the course.
