The Level 3 Food Hygiene online course is suitable for anyone who is involved in the management or supervision of food handlers within a food environment.
It is recommended that all food premises should have at least one person trained to Level 3 in food hygiene and safety - particularly if they are in charge of other staff and are responsible for the training of those staff.
As a business owner or supervisor, you have a duty to comply with the provisions of Regulation (EC) 852/2004 of the European Parliament on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, the Food Safety Act 1990, and the Food Hygiene Regulations 2005.
This Level 3 Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate for Supervisors course satisfies a food handler’s legal obligation to undertake appropriate food safety training, as well as building on the safety principles explained in the Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene course. A sound knowledge of the latest food safety principles, as well as the senior duties within a food setting, will help to improve the quality of any products or services produced by your business.
This Level 3 Food Safety Course is aimed at any business striving to achieve a 5* rating under the national hygiene rating system. Boost knowledge, confidence and understanding and receive a high quality certificate, accredited by City and Guilds, to demonstrate training has taken place. Some of the areas covered by this course include:
The material is provided in an interactive format that is designed to be engaging and accessible. A basic knowledge of food hygiene will mean learners progress quickly, but the course is designed for anyone working in the service or hospitality sectors and should be suitable for any staff member to give them the knowledge needed to work effectively and safely.
This food safety and hygiene course is directed toward anyone working in a senior role within the food industry, such as supervisor or small business owner, who has already completed the Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene course. This also included anyone who is involved in the management of staff members in a catering environment, including hotels, restaurants, takeaways, cafes, bars, fast food outlets, fish & chip shops, kitchens, hospitals, prisons, schools and colleges.
The course can be used either as Induction, Awareness, Refresher or Foundation Training, making it a highly flexible choice. It also demonstrates that your organisation is dedicated to educating its staff by delivering first class food safety training without the need for off-site learning or disruptive classroom sessions.
To help develop an in-depth knowledge of food safety and hygiene, this course provides interactive content which is split into the following chapters:

At the end of this course, you will need to complete a test that consists of 30 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark, and - if necessary - may attempt the test three times at no extra cost. If learners do not achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.
Upon completing the course, learners will be able to download a digital food hygiene certificate accredited by City & Guilds from Virtual College. A high quality, seal embossed, posted certificate will be sent out at the beginning of the next working week. This certification is universally recognised and can be used to provide evidence of food hygiene and safety training both internally and to external auditors. There is no set time for how long a certificate is valid for, but the accepted industry standard is for food hygiene certificates to be renewed every three years. However, some employers may require you to renew your certification more frequently than this.
If you’re working in the hospitality or service industry as a supervisor, you will need to comply with the latest food and hygiene regulations. This Level 3 Food Hygiene course is designed to help you comply with EU Regulation 852/2004, which requires food businesses to ensure that any employee who handles food is fully trained in food hygiene and for you to be able to train or supervise others within the industry. The contents of this course were developed in accordance to the Environmental Health Officer's guidelines, and also adhere to the Industry Standards set by People 1st and the Sector Skills Council for the Hospitality, Leisure, Travel and Tourism industries.
