Level 2 Food Safety

Food Hygiene Training

The most highly accredited online Level 2 food hygiene and food safety certificate available.


This course has been created by the Nationwide Caterers Association, audited by Milton Keynes Council and accredited by City & Guilds.

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.

Do you need this hygiene training certification?
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.

Our course has been written, designed and approved by experts and it's the most respected online level 2 course you can buy.

At NCASS we work with over 250 local authorities, more than 450 environmental health officers and with many other authorities on all aspects of the industry. As a result, EHOs love to see our food hygiene certificates and choosing to train with the Nationwide Caterers Association sends a positive message about your professionalism.

We don't cut corners here; our training is not just a box ticking exercise. Upon completion of the course and test, you'll receive a high quality laminated food hygiene certificate that contains a security hologram and a unique serial number that can be traced to your training portfolio.

Why do we charge a Certificate Fee?

We charge a small fee of £12.50 - £15 because we pay City & Guilds for every single one of your training certificates so that you can show off your accreditation by them. And we need to cover our production and postage costs too of course.

We’re the only course provider to create quality, laminated A4 colour certificates, because we want them to stand up to your catering environment. Complete with its own security hologram, your NCASS training certificate will prove that you and your staff are qualified to City & Guilds accredited standards.

We’ll even send it on the next working day so that you won’t be waiting long for proof of your qualification. We don’t think it’s too big a price to pay really.
