SOFHT Level 4 Food Safety Training

The Society of Food Hygiene and Technology (SOFHT) is offering Level 4 Food Safety Courses for both food manufacturers and caterers in a flexible ‘Fast Track’ format to enable busy senior managers in the food industry to secure quality training without having to leave their business for consecutive days at a time.

Unlike other Level 4 food safety training courses where modules are taken consecutively, often meaning senior staff have to be off-site for up to a week, modules in SOFHT’s five day food hygiene course will be run one day a week over five consecutive weeks, (40 guided learning hours).

This means that managers can simply ‘hop on’ to module one, get back to work and ‘hop on’ again the next week, saving valuable time and money for the business.

Courses will be run consecutively throughout 2021 & 2022, so if a module is missed, managers can enrol on just that one module on the next course. Courses can be joined at any point too since the modules delivered on each day’s training are independent of having attended the other days.  It is not necessary to complete all of the modules in a particular order and managers can also just attend one day for an attendance certificate, if a particular module was of interest.

SOFHT’s Level 4 course is designed to meet industry’s need for a high level practical qualification with external accreditation – students enrolling for this course will take the RSPH examination either for manufacturers or caterers sector specific level 4 – making it ideal for senior food managers, production managers, area managers, hygiene auditors and trainers as well as those working at a senior level in the foodservice industry.

Although flexible, delegates are charged SOFHT’s normal daily course rate for each of the days they sign up to, i.e. £151 for members and £210 for non-members.  The overall cost of attending would be between £755 and £1050. There are two additional charges for the examination (£55) and the course workbook (£35).
