Food Safety and GMP for Manufacturing – specifically designed for your product sector…

Typicfood safety and gmp for bakery manufacturingal basic food hygiene training, or Level 2 Food Safety as sometimes 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 food safety training which meets todays modern manufacturing environment.

No longer should 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 may not even use such high risk ingredients. Operators should however be taught about the controls which are critical to the product that is being made, such as pasteurisation or CIP in dairy, cooking where high risk products are being made, glass controls on a glass bottling plant or curing and smoking for meat.

This eLearning provides site operators with not only food safety and GMP for manufacturing training, relevant to the product they are producing, but also brings in GMP requirements which are key to their roles – such as product defence and product integrity.

Lesson guide

All of our food safety and GMP for manufacturing courses, come with one of our famous lesson guides.  This is provided on the course in eBook (pdf) format, or you can purchase paperback copies for your training room.



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.

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

  2. Steve Petrowsky (verified owner)

    Very good course and nicely presented throughout.

  3. Suzanne Goss – Technical Manager at Alsop & Walker

    I completed my Free Trial of the Dairy manufacturing course this morning and have recommended it for our 4 Dairy Assistants, as although designed primarily for large commercial factories, it is much more relevant for our staff in an artisan cheese dairy, than the standard level 2 courses.

  4. Samantha Atkinson-Kirman

    great course, easy to use and understand.
