Partnership provides food safety exam online

learndirect business has teamed up with the Royal Institute of Public Health (RIPH) to offer an RIPH Food Safety Exam online.

It has also launched a new Basic Food Hygiene course that can be accessed on the internet. The 'eCourse' is introduced by chef and host of BBC TV's Saturday Kitchen, James Martin and aims to provide the knowledge required to take the exam.

Michelle Lofthouse, director of business development at learndirect business, said: "Food hygiene legislation affects food businesses of all sizes including caterers, primary producers, manufacturers and retailers. With the new eCourse and RIPH accredited exam, we hope to provide a valuable service to the thousands of businesses across the UK that work with food.

"Like all learndirect business eCourses, the Basic Food Hygiene eCourse can be accessed immediately online, providing a flexible way of training that can be completed in easy to manage modules and fitted in around the working day."

The eCourse covers subjects such as micro-organisms and how they can cause illness, the importance of personal hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, pest controls, premises, hazards and current legal obligations.

The exam can be taken at a number of RIPH approved learndirect centres around the country and provides an instant result. There are two different RIPH accredited qualifications that can be achieved Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering and a Foundation Certificate in Food Hygiene.
