Food safety

About this course

In August 2014, the MCA introduced the requirement for ship's cooks and others processing food in the galley to hold a recognised Level 2 Food Safety certificate. An online qualification will not be valid - the requirement is attendance at a one-day course with an exam.

The course is also a recommendation for food handlers, including interior crew, and covers all aspects of food safety to control hazards leading to food poisoning, food-borne illness and contamination.

Yachtwork is a recognised training provider for Level 2 Food Safety that complies with the new regulations and provides training close to the Warsash campus, and in conjunction with Interior Yacht Services to complement their PYA GUEST training in Rotterdam.
