Duration: 50 minutes*

The Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 video e-Learning course is an interactive and fully-certified training scheme for business owners, managers and other senior staff in the restaurant and catering industries. This course is fully certified and approved by RoSPA and the CPD, and is designed to inform your overall approach to food hygiene and food safety inspections.

First implemented in late 2008, the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme now applies across Wales, Northern Ireland and England. The scheme ensures that businesses are compliant with food safety laws, and requires that you display your certificate publicly for customers to view. Fully compliant businesses will receive a four or five rating, while lapses will have a negative effect.

Food handlers and their employers have a legal obligation to ensure that food is handled and prepared in a safe manner. These requirements are laid out across several UK and EU laws, which state that food handlers must make sure that any food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold is safe for human consumption.

While food hygiene starts with food safety training for employees, it’s equally important that employers instil a positive workplace culture that reinforces this training. The Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 course aims to educate business owners and senior staff on how to maintain good food hygiene on a consistent basis, and satisfy the criteria for a good Food Hygiene Rating.

This course is intended to give you an overview of how the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme works, what the scoring criteria are and how these are assessed by the inspectors, the appeals process, the Safer Food Better Business management system, and how to prevent E-Coli. It concludes with some practical advice to ensure that your premises get the best score possible.

SAMS also offer a range of food safety courses for employees, including the Level 1 and Level 2 Awards in Food Safety for Catering, as well as a range of courses for other food sectors.

The Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 video course provides an ideal overview of food hygiene for senior staff, and is perfect for:

  • Business owners
  • Managers
  • Supervisors
  • Other decision makers.

What is Video e-Learning?

Video e-Learning is our new online video training system, and an alternative approach to our traditional e-Learning courses. Each module of the Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 course is taught with a face-to-face video. Once you’ve finished the video and taken in all of the information, you’ll then have to pass a test to move onto the next module.

This food safety video course is perfect for visual learners, and anyone who prefers the classroom environment but is unable to make it to our training centre. Video e-Learning users benefit from the visual stimulus of the video training and face-to-face tuition, with all of the advantages of studying wherever and whenever suits you best.
