Training courses

We no longer offer face to face food hygiene training courses but excellent, on-line courses are available from the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH). If you have more than 6 staff requiring training we can arrange a training course specifically for you at the Council offices or your own venue.
We continue to provide a range of health and safety training courses for our own staff and contractors in our well equipped training facility at Ebley Mill, Stroud. members of the public may be able to join these classes for a small fee.

On-line Food Hygiene Training Courses

Wherever food is served, it is vitally important that those involved in its preparation, handling, storage and serving can demonstrate the highest of service standards and hygiene.

This is not only to ensure the safety of those who will be consuming the food, but also that government regulations are being adhered to at all times and without compromise.

Organisations can receive large fines for non-compliance, while also risking the success and reputation of the business, so it's essential that you and those you work with are equipped with the right food safety skills and knowledge.

Successfully completing CIEH food safety courses will demonstrate your commitment to food safety, and that your expertise has been approved to the highest standards
