Overview

An integral part of the corporate flight attendants’ role is their relationship with food and catering. You are responsible for everything from sourcing catering, preparing gourmet meals, or picking up exotic dishes from local restaurants. Preparing food and catering for private jet passengers is not only about flavour and presentation, it is more importantly about hygiene and safety.

Training in hygiene best practices is an important step to developing a culture of food safety. Failing to do so increases risk of food contamination and impact on the passenger. In turn, this can lead to customer dissatisfaction, potential loss of revenue, the loss of good reputation, and market share for operators.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

During our Food Safety and Hygiene Awareness Training, you will learn how to minimize the chances of food contamination or food poisoning, protecting both the passenger and your reputation. You will learn the skills to handle and prepare food safely in a private or business jet environment including the theoretical principles of food hygiene and safety, food safety standards and procedures.

Our food safety program will provide you with the training, knowledge and certification to maintain your responsibilities as a food handler. This is a recognised food safety qualification delivered in accordance with EU legislation and standards.

Our training facilities incorporate state-of-the art equipment and training scenarios to help you react intuitively and effectively. To imitate reality as closely as possible, you will train in a cabin simulator configured to replicate the aircraft you fly in and use actual food and catering equipment from the real-world environment.
