Eversley Training was established in October 2004, to assist the food trade in complying with the supervision and training requirements set out in the Food Acts.
It aims to:
- help reduce the number of outbreaks of food poisoning.
- train staff at a time convenient to both employers and employees.
- provide cost effective training to a trade which typically has a high turnover of staff.
- Make training fun and enjoyable by using technology.
Two online courses are available. The Foundation course covers the basic requirements for food handlers; the Intermediate course is for more experienced staff and supervisors. Both courses have been designed to make learning easy and enjoyable.
Each course takes an average of two to three hours to complete, but there is no time limit. The multiple choice tests at the end of the courses measure the students understanding of the information, rather than their academic ability. Successful candidates are awarded a certificate which may be used as a training record for enforcement agencies.
- Staff can be trained during their first few days of employment.
- No need to send staff away from their work place to train. They can train at work or at home provided they have a computer and internet access.
- Students learn at their own pace.
- Students can refer back to any section of the training notes and revise for the test.
- The courses can be used as refresher courses for existing staff.
- Free demonstration section on this website.
- Certificates of achievement are issued upon passing the tests.
- Process is supervised by a qualified Environmental Health Officer and member of the Chartered Institute Of Environmental Health
