Allergen Awareness Course

Our Allergy Awareness Level 2 course was created to cover the legal requirement for certain regulated food allergens that came into force on 13th December 2014.

This covers how the law on allergens has changed, as well as managing the threat of food allergens in your workplace. In November 2019, this course was further updated to incorporate details regarding Natasha’s Law.

Upon completion of the course, you shall be able to provide the necessary information to customers regarding the regulated allergens in your food and ensure these are appropriately managed within your food business.

Course Length
The Allergen Awareness course consists of 7 levels, which means that we estimate the course to take approximately 2 hours. Once enrolled, you will then have 30 days to complete the course. You can dip in and out of the course to suit your time, as long as you complete it within the 30 days from enrolment.
