Food Safety Training CD 2000 – Review


A computer-based level 1 Food Safety Course
Creative Learning Media
Commended by the Royal Institute of Public Health & Hygiene

Licence to train up to 10 users 125.00 + VAT & inclusive of certificates. Licence to train up to 20 Users £175.00 + VAT & inclusive of certificates. 3 YEAR Licence to train up to 100 Food Handlers for £300. A bespoke licence is also available. Certificates featuring the RIPHH Logo are also available for the additional cost of £20 per 100.

Legislation in the UK and other countries requires that all Food Handlers receive training in the areas which surround their work activities. The training areas I cover in my current role are inclusive of some catering outlets and also convenience food stores.

Legislation requires that many of our personnel are away from the unit for courses covering 'Food Hygiene' and given the nature of the catering industry this can often effect already over-burdened operational activities. Staff turnover in the industry in relation to cost is also a consideration when funding 'Food Hygiene' training.

To say that I am impressed with this multimedia CD ROM package is in reality an understatement. From initially receiving the package the very nature of the packaging invited me to take a closer look. On beginning my review I decided that I would pay the part of the 'untrained food handler' (I actually already hold a Food handling certificate) and work through the modules. The graphics where big bright and inviting and navigation through the various modules was easy and progress, I am certain, could easily be made even by individuals with limited PC skills, at a rate that suited both their personal and the organisations needs.

Objectives were clear and were met via a series of module related exercises. From a monitoring point of view progress could be checked on the specific individual and the training could be 'put down' and restarted at a later time if this was required. A glossary of terms and also further more specific information on areas included were available behind the initial package and these along with the objectives could be printed.

When focusing on the area that is closest to any Training Managers heart, 'COST', the average price in local colleges for a 'Basic Food Hygiene course' is around £40 per person. In comparison to under £5 per person if taken on a 3 year licence (inclusive of certificate) this is the answer to my prayers.
