Our Customers Said

The course was really good, the videos are very good and the deliberate mistakes are a good idea to make people think! Customer service is also fantastic, I had an issue that was resolved immediately and extremely well. Excellent.

by Elise Cocking

I was really happy with the course. It was very informative and really allowed me to expand my knowledge. There were diagrams and images that even would assist someone who is alien to the catering industry. It is very clear and highlights the legal framework around the subject area. It also shows appropriate and inappropriate practices. This clarifies previous misconceptions that laymen like myself had. I was overall extremely satisfied and would most certainly recommend the course for people from all walks of life.

Last year I put 10 employees through the course and have just signed up another 6. Its a very easy to use course informative and comprehensive.
The employees can work at their own pace and there is a fast track option for more experiences members of staff who have done the course several times before.
Great value for money.
