I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending iQualifi to friends and other colleagues looking for courses that you cover.

Very easy to enrol and finish the course. Thank you.
Fantastic Level Two Food Hygiene and Safety course Fantastic course. Well presented. Written by renowned Jerry Diplock. He tutored the first Food Hygiene course I attended at Torridge District Council Environmental Health Department back in about 2006, so when I stumbled across this online course written by him, I knew it would be good. Friendly tutor, Jonathan talked me through the process of enrolling. This course was bang up to date with a section devoted to Covid19. Structured into about 38 parts with questions after each part and a couple of case studies at the end. This suited me as I don’t like to spend hours reading with a multiple choice at the end, when I may have forgotten something important. Unlike most Food hygiene courses, this course tries to make the questions thought provoking and relating to real life rather than just text book questions and answers. It took me about 2 hours to complete. Would highly recommend and can’t wait until iQualifi publish a Level Three course. Have now enrolled my husband on the course too!
Very enjoyable course thank you
