How much does it cost for retakes? Is the level 3 EHO Approved?


Hi retakes cost nothing. Within the online course if the 20 question assessment is failed a button pops up offering the opportunity to redo the assessment. The course is EHO, RoSPA and CPD approved and therefore fully aligns to the knowledge requirements of a HACCP level 3 course. From a learning prospective the format is engaging graphic and real world videos to support knowledge retention. We feel this is preferable to static text & voiceover based courses. Hope this helps.
