There is a strong focus on the role of a food handler in controlling cross-contamination, temperature control, ensuring allergen information is effectively communicated, and the reporting signs of pests.

The Exam

Immediately after the Zoom Live Food Safety Webinar, you will be able to log on to the link sent to you and complete the exam. The RQF exam is invigilated using a remote invigilation app provided by Highfield Qualifications.

The invigilation ensures that, as a RQF 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 multiple choice, with a pass mark of 13/20.
