Learner Reviews

"Yes useful, as I planned to attend this Food Hygiene course anyway as I planned to assist my Brother in his food business in an adhoc basis. Just not sure if this Certificate of Completion is also acceptable by National Environment Agency for registration of Food Handlers. The course is easy to learn and follow through as they were delivered in small chucks and can be completed at my own pace. Gnowbe is a good learning platform. It was stable and I did not experience unexpected issue in the learning process."
