    The REHIS Elementary Food Hygiene Certificate is a practical course designed to give food handlers a basic knowledge and understanding of the causes of food poisoning, measures for prevention and the legal aspects of food hygiene in Scotland.

    Anyone working directly with food as a food handler is required to be trained in food hygiene. A food handler is anyone that comes into contact with food directly or indirectly.

    If the date does not not suit you but you would still like the training, or you want this training delivered to your team (6-10 people) please get in touch with their facilitator Jackie at [email protected]. The course will cover:

It is also relevant to anyone working or volunteering with food in community projects, foodbanks, food redistribution projects such as larders and pantries, community shops, cooking skills classes and much more.
