It’s owner, Matthias Kausch, is a member of the International Association for Food Protection and a licensed trainer of the Environmental Health Officers Association (EHOA) as well as the National Hygiene Partnership (NHP).




The Course can be taken at any time and any place so all that is required is an internet connection and a computer.

Other Information

You do not have to complete the online course in one sitting and you can also break it into small chunks if you wish. Should you have to leave the course unexpectedly, it will remember where you were the last time you left it. How long it takes you to complete the online course in Certified Food Allergen Awareness really depends on you, but 2 hour is a good guideline.
