Level 2 Food Safety Bakery Manufacturing – PLUS GMP!!!

Specifically designed for bakery… Level 2 Food Safety Bakery Manufacturing

basic food hygiene bakeryTypical basic food hygiene training, or Level 2 Food Safety as its now called, has been around for many, many years and was originally built for food made in a kitchen.

Today food manufacturing and the associated standards have advanced dramatically since then and so Techni-K have designed level 2 food safety training which meets todays modern manufacturing environment.

No longer should bakery operators continue to be taught why it’s important to segregate raw and cooks high risk foods (such as chicken), even though in their day to day roles, they do not even use such high risk ingredients.

This eLearning provides bakery operators with not only Level 2 food safety bakery manufacturing training, relevant to the product they are producing, but also brings in GMP requirements which are key to their roles.

Course overview

The course is designed to show the learner around a virtual factory; The Bakery Company Ltd, as a new starter.  As the learner makes their way around the outside of the factory; enters the staff entrance, moves their way around the staff facilities and then walks the factory process, they learn about all the food safety and GMP elements applicable to bakery production at each step of the process.

Level 2 Food Safety Bakery Manufacturing

“Excellent!  I think this is a must for our site!” Jason Burrows, Site Trainer, Kara Foods.

“Our employee passed the exam and they found it more interesting than the traditional way of e-learning. They liked the interactive element and that it was both reading and listening sections (when we finally got speakers set up). They also liked that it was actually aimed for the environment they worked in and they could relate to it better. Overall a big thumbs up and I will use again when the opportunity arises. Keep up with the excellent work and making learning more fun!! Many thanks” David Nelson, Technical Manager, Enjays.

To successfully pass the course, the learner needs to get at least 70% in a 25 multiple choice test.  The questions for the test are randomly selected from a bank of hundreds of questions, so if the learner fails the test, they can retake it, as they will be presented with another 25 questions.  A lesson guide is also provided for the course; which includes all the information that the learner needs to be able to answer the questions, they just need to have understood the information sufficiently to be able to find the answer they need.

On successful completion of the test, a certificate will be instantly generated, which is ready to print.
