There are 3 types of learning:

Classroom based. Learn in a classroom. Ask questions and have an exam at the end where you will receive an Awarding Body certificate 

Online Based. Learn at work or at home. You may do an exam at the end of the course and receive a learning certificate

Blended Learning. learn at your own pace either work or at home. Take the exam in the classroom and receive an accredited HABC Awarding Body certificate 

What am I going to learn?
This one day course will explain how you can make your business compliant by:
  • recognising an allergic reaction and learning what to do
  • identifying common allergens and the foods they can be found in
  • understanding current and forth coming allergen laws
  • finding allergen information and communicating this to customers
  • carrying out an allergen risk assessment;
  • devising an action plan to ensure legal compliance when back in the workplace
Is there a test involved?
In order to attain the award all candidates must take a 30 question multiple choice test (pass mark: 20/30).  Tests are marked by the Awarding Body and the results/certificate are not available on the day of the course. 

Things you should know
The course, workbooks and exam paper are available only available in English. Lunch is not included though we will have a break for 45 minutes so everyone can get out for a bit of fresh air and a bite to eat.
