What is involved?

The precourse workbook, link to join the Zoom webinars and information on the remote invigilation process is available on the online event page.

The pre-course workbook contains activities to complete, numerous food safety references, and tutor support available before the Zoom Live Webinars.

The course tutor is a qualified Environmental Health Practitioner with years of experience in the catering and hospitality industry, which helps to make it relevant and engaging.

The course is a face-to-face food safety course delivered on Zoom over five days. Interactive activities during the course, interaction and discussion between tutor and delegates, practice sample exam questions and more. The latest training materials are provided with reference to the most up to date food safety guidance.

The exam

Approximately three weeks after the course, you will be able to log in and complete the exam online. The regulated exam is invigilated using a remote invigilation app provided by Highfield Qualifications.

The zoom session can be joined from any device, but the exam must be completed on a pc or laptop with webcam. The remote invigilation will not work on a tablet

The invigilation ensures that, as a regulated qualification, the integrity of the exam is protected – how else would an EHO know it was you who had completed an online exam?

The exam is in two parts; the first part is a 30 question multiple-choice exam, part two is a written exam worth 70 marks over four questions. You are allowed 2½ hours to complete the exam. To pass you must achieve a minimum of 50/100. A merit is 60/100 and a distinction for 70/100.

Results & Certificates

Results are available within 7 days of completing the exam. The certificates are then sent by email.
