REHIS Food Hygiene Training Courses

ROHSS are registered with REHIS to deliver the following REHIS Food Hygiene Training Courses.


Introduction to Food Hygiene

The REHIS Introduction to Food Hygiene Course is an non examined pre-employment food hygiene awareness course aimed primarily at food handlers entering the food industry for the first time. The course is also suitable for staff who have an ancillary food handling role, for example, portering staff and staff who distribute pre plated meals, but whose primary function is not that of a food handler.


The syllabus aims to raise awareness of the key food hygiene issues in the catering sector of the food industry. The basic syllabus may be adapted to meet the needs of new food handlers entering other sectors.


The course syllabus is designed to meet the initial training requirements of the Industry Guides to Good Hygiene Practice and this course should be taken by new food handlers before being allowed to start work for the first time and before progressing to the formal training recommendations of the Industry Guides, eg, The REHIS Elementary Food Hygiene Course.
