Level 2 Food Hygiene Training

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

This course has been created by the Nationwide Caterers Association and audited by The Royal Borough of Greenwich.


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.
