Chloe Berry

I recently completed the Level 2 course in Food Hygiene, Level 3 Supervisor course and the Level 2 Allergy Awareness course.
As a student I needed clear and concise courses that I could do whilst studying to gain qualifications for my CV. The courses were well priced, well written and fun! I even did them on my phone. I’d recommend this company to anyone who needs food hygiene training.

Alex Pomeroy

I found the content very good and easy to follow.
It was great to have small sections to work through which meant I could split the training over a couple of days.

Donna Judge

It was a very good with clear instructions and the training lessons were very informative.
Easy to access and learn from and I got my certificate immediately

Lynda Wilson

I’m a foster mum and wanted to learn more about Allergies. I have children arriving in the night and unfortunately a lot of the children suffer with allergies.
The training lessons were easy to follow and didn’t take long to complete. I loved the mini quizzes at the end of each lesson as they remind you of the most important facts.
I will feel more confident the next time a child arrives with allergies and will be recommending your courses to other foster mums and dads.
Thank you.

Lynne Gee

Just finished the Level 2 Food Hygiene Course. I already had a certificate that was three years old and thought it was time to update it.
I got through the course pretty quickly and was amazed how much of the basics I had forgotten.
Great for refreshing your training.

Georgette Wallace

I had just started working in a pub and needed to take a Level 2 Food Hygiene Course. I have never done online training before and my computer knowledge was minimal. I found the website and course easy to use, very informative and passed with 97%.
I would definitely recommend this course and will be using Essential Food Hygiene in the future.
