Assured Food Safety Ltd - providing practical food safety solutions since 2002
AFS Training Services
As a food business operator you recognise the need for ongoing training of your staff. Training is critical in helping you to successfully maintain your food safety management programmes, and in enabling your staff to develop their capabilities.
While attending a public course is of value, a better learning experience is likely to occur when training is focused on what actually happens in the place where people work.
So all our food safety related courses are fully customised to your business. We focus on your products and processes, and your FCP/RMP or National Programme requirements. Depending on your needs, your course might take from just 2 hours or take several days. Your course can be tailored to fit in with your production schedule.
Most popular courses
We can also develop a course to meet your specific requirements.
On completion of training, all participants receive a certificate. If you require, we can include a written assessment (quiz) as well.
Training is typically conducted on-site at your premises, or at a venue of your choice.

"Shane Hopgood of Assured Food Safety Ltd was contracted by Mayceys Confectionery to develop a customized Food Safety training course for their staff. Shanes brief was to keep it simple yet detailed and focused on the Mayceys production environment.
Shane delivered on all aspects with staff praising how the course was presented and made them understand clearly what was expected and why. Staff were talking about the course for weeks after which made it clear to management it was totally worthwhile.
Mayceys would have no hesitation using Shane's services again for future training and refresher courses".

He has worked with subject matter experts within our business to customise his programmes to meet our needs and as a result has ensured the learning is more meaningful for our learners thereby supporting required learning outcomes. Shane is always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure delivery of a highly professional programme and is very accommodating in terms of his availability to deliver in house at times that work for our business, often outside normal business hours. Feedback from learners who attend Shane’s sessions is always very positive with comments about Shane’s engaging training style and the informative session content. Thanks Shane for the work you do for our business – it is highly valued.”

"Shane came to us highly recommended, and certainly didn’t disappoint. Shane presented an internal auditing course to the QC team at Premier Beehive. The aim was to upskill the team, and get them to better understand the HACCP and RMP programme, its function, and how to audit it to an appropriate standard. The upfront work allowed the course material to be uniquely tailored to the site and to the level of the team.
The ongoing benefit, is that the training has provided the team with additional confidence in going about their daily tasks, and a deeper knowledge of the expectations of the programme. The two day course was factual, informative and enjoyable".
