Who should complete this course?:


Highfield’s Food Safety Level 3 online training course is designed for supervisors and managers with responsibility for food safety.It is ideal for those supervising or managing food safety in a catering environment, but is equally useful for those working within food manufacturing.

It is also an ideal training course for those who have gained a good understanding of food hygiene while working as food handlers and are looking to make the step up to supervisory or management positions.

If you are a food handler working within a catering business below the level of supervisor or manager, we would recommend our Food Safety Level 2 e-learning course.

If you work within a food manufacturing environment below the level of supervisor or manager, we offer a dedicated training programme, the Food Safety in Manufacturing Level 2 course. This online training course is designed specifically with the differences between manufacturing and catering food businesses in mind.

If you don’t directly handle food, or only work with low-risk foods, you may consider the Food Safety Level 1 e-learning course.
