Holchem launches its Virtual Training Progamme

Blog | 2 September 2020

Holchem has launched a new way to access its award winning training courses with its Virtual Training Programme.  The new form of delivering the renowned training courses is a response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the government restrictions on social distancing and the restrictions on unnecessary travel balanced with the need of Holchem’s customers to offer continual professional development to their teams.


The courses focus on accredited Level 3 Cleaning Technology & Control and Level 2 courses (Allergen Awareness, Listeria Awareness, Hygiene Awareness for Cleaning Operatives and Hygiene Awareness for Engineers) which have a shorter duration thus allowing for a more pleasant and effective learner experience.  An interactivity functionality has been introduced within the sessions to maximise engagement of the learner and to enhance the teaching / learning process.


The courses are aimed at all levels of the food hygiene teams from operative to supervisor to manager and two of the courses Level 3 Cleaning Technology and Control and Level 4 Allergen Management are accredited by Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance.


There is still the option for face to face site-based training at a customer’s premises however this is on an ad-hoc basis. All requests are considered on an individual basis and have to go through the relevant risk assessment procedures.


Commentating on the new virtual courses, Nikki Bellamy, Holchem Technical Service Manager, said:

We know that our customers still want to carry out on-going training for their teams and the virtual training programme meets that demand.  It’s all the same award-winning content, delivered by the same teams, just in a different way.


The courses commence on 9th September and are available throughout the year.  To book visit the Holchem online shop and the list of all the courses, cost, content and dates are available.
