Food Hygiene courses.

I need to do a food hygiene certificate, level two and possibly three for my micro dairy venture. Someone told me I could do it online and the local EHO said whatever I did needed to be CIEH (chartered institute of environmental health) accredited, which most of them aren't. There is a CIEH online site but only gives basic info and can I get them to answer the phone?? That's a big NO..... Rolling Eyes

Has anyone here any experience of any of this? Does it really have to be CIEH, what's wrong with City and Guilds for example? Any opinions on whether it's better to do it online or on a course? I like the idea of online as it means I don't have to leave the farm and can do it in my own time.


I need to do the manufacturing one and am thinking of doing the level three as it covers HACCP as well though may simply do the separate haccp training instead... I could also do with some advice on whether that's all I'd need to cover. I have a vague notion that there is some other kind of risk assessment thing to do but might just be making that up. Any thoughts/experiences most appreciated. Very Happy

Sounds fun, some days I wish I could do that instead.

It's going to be a really impressive juggling act. If a bit niche. 12Bore

I'll send you front row tickets to my first performance Laughing Pilsbury

I would actually lovevto expand my knowlwdge and experiance in fish mongering and butchery, im interested but finding a course i can attend or afford is proving difficult for my limited search effort, maybe i shpuld change jobs 12Bore

I'd been at Morrisons for about 3 weeks, when the, then, personnel manager asked me if I'd be interested in doing a day's overtime each week working on the fish counter. I jumped at the chance and now I'm trying to make it a permanent switch. I want to be trained properly, to be a fishmonger, rather than someone who works on the fish counter, IYSWIM.
The ultimate would be a proper 3 year apprenticeship course, but, I suspect, I'm too old for that.

Juggling, that feels like what I do, only with a small child, a load of meat & a load of livestock.

Is it an online only course?
I need to do one, only I got bamboozled by the websites, there wasn't an option for "Gimme an accredited one in Yorkshire please" Laughing

Well done. The Level 3 live piranhas and shuriken is where it gets tricky though. Wink
