Test & Certification

1–2% of adults in the UK have a food allergy, as do 5–8% of children – this equates to around 1.5 million people in the UK. When combining the risks that arise from allergens with the risks that arise from poor hygiene and cross contamination, we are left with a huge risk level. Therefore, all staff who work with food are responsible for ensuring a high level of food safety that protects everyone. If you handle food, the law applies to you. You must be able to recognise and deal with food hazards in your workplace.

At the end of the online abrasive wheels training, you will be given a 20-question, multiple-choice test. The required pass rate is 85%. You will be able to download and print a digital certificate on completion of the course. A course certificate is 12 months for this annual refresher.


The course will take approximately 30 minutes to complete, excluding the final exam.
