Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate

Did you know that it’s a legal requirement that you are able to prove that you and your staff are adequately trained to do your job? For any staff who handle open foods, the safest way to do this is to complete a Level 2 food hygiene training course with NCASS.

Level 2 Food Hygiene is the intermediate and most popular hygiene training course among caterers. While Level 1 training suffices only for staff who do not handle food, and Level 3 is suitable for managers and supervisors, Level 2 Food Hygiene training is appropriate for most food handling staff within a catering business.

Created, inspected and accredited by experts, our online food hygiene course is the most respected level 2 training course a caterer can take. NCASS food hygiene certainly packs a punch with EHOs, and that’s why you should take your Food Hygiene training with us.

We provide hygiene training for those looking to work in hospitality, leisure, restaurants, fast food, and other industries too. What’s more, our Level 2 Food Hygiene training works for anyone working in the travel, tourism and education sectors. Enforcement bodies for each of these industries recognise the Level 2 Food Hygiene certification as the most reputable course out there.

When you and your staff take an NCASS Level 2 Food Hygiene training course, they glean the knowledge they need to make your workplace a safe place.
