It is recognised by environmental health officers and local authorities as meeting the legal obligations for the training of supervisors and managers.

Our Food Safety Level 3 online training course is designed for supervisors and managers with responsibility for food safety.

It is ideal for those supervising or managing food safety in a catering environment, but is equally useful for those working within food manufacturing.  

It is also an ideal training course for those who have gained a good understanding of food hygiene while working as food handlers and are looking to make the step up to supervisory or management positions.

If you are a food handler working within a catering business below the level of supervisor or manager, we would recommend our Food Safety Level 2 e-learning course.

If you work within a food manufacturing environment below the level of supervisor or manager, we offer a dedicated training programme, the Food Safety in Manufacturing Level 2 course. This online training course is designed specifically with the differences between manufacturing and catering food businesses in mind.

Entry requirements

There are no prerequisites to study this course, though an understanding of principles of food safety will be beneficial.

Test and certification

The course is assessed by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course. Learners must score 100% in order to pass.

If the learner does not achieve 100% first time, they will be taken back to review the module with which they have struggled. They can then retry the multiple-choice questions as many times as necessary to pass the course.
