    The Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland's 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

    The course will cover:

    • an introduction to food hygiene
    • bacteria and their characteristics
    • food poisoning and its prevention
    • personal hygiene and food handling The working environment
    • food pests and how to control them
    • effective cleaning practices
    • HACCP and food legislation

    This course will give you the knowledge and skills to work with and comply with food safety and hygiene practices. It is relevant to anyone working or intending to work in hospitality and catering, the care sector, food retailing and food processing, and anyone who is interested in food hygiene. 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.

    The course is seven hours in total and includes 30 minutes for a multiple-choice test to achieve the certificate and a 30-minute lunch break.

    The certificate is awarded by the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS).

It is an accredited REHIS training centre. Its courses are delivered by experienced and accredited tutors.
