Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 Training Online

Approved by  Covers UK & Irish Legislation

Achieving Food Hygiene Rating Level 5 Training Online is the ideal course for management to give them a complete overview of how the National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme works. It covers the scoring criteria and how scores are assessed by the inspectors. It will cover the appeals process, the Safer Food Better Business management system and concludes with some practical advice for ensuring your premises gets the best score possible.

In December 2008 the Food Standards Agency agreed a National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme. It is now running in all areas of Wales, Northern Ireland and in 99% of England. In practice the rating scheme is designed to ensure that businesses that are broadly compliant with food law and are managing food safety risks will receive a rating of three … and those who are managing the risk well will receive a rating of four or five. However, significant lapses in any of the scoring criteria can also have a significant effect on the rating and therefore your business and reputation.


The course covers relevant legislation and how you should comply with it to achieve your Level 5 Food Hygiene Rating.
