Training

High quality training ensures that a business can increase, modify and develop knowledge, skills and attitude.

We provide a number of training options to enhance the theoretical and practical knowledge of a business’s workforce with experts on hand to deliver and evolve that knowledge base. Our focus is to supply a range of courses that benefit, primarily, the roles of hygiene and technical teams directly involved in the management of hygiene on their sites. The courses are classed as Level 2, 3 and 4 reflecting broadly equivalency to the City and Guilds structure. The training where appropriate is HABC (Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance) accredited.

Level 2 (L2) courses are primarily aimed at hygiene operatives and include both tutor given and eLearning courses. The Level 3 (L3) courses, tutor given, are aimed at Hygiene Supervisors and the Level 4 (L4) courses, tutor given, at Hygiene and Technical Managers.

The options are eLearning, On-customer-site training and HABC accredited training courses.

The beauty of eLearning is that it allows the learner to access the training materials they need at a time and place that is convenient to them. The web resource is an ‘always on’ service which means that learners can go at their own pace and the time in a classroom is minimised.

The web-based service is easy to use in that it creates an individual account which can then be used to purchase one of several courses. Once the course has been successfully completed a certificate of achievement is generated.

The web based courses include:
