The Foodservice Equipment Association (FEA) is offering 40 free places on its Certified Food Service Professional (CFSP) course to people from the hospitality industry who have been made redundant as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and are looking for work within the industry.
CFSP aims to support, develop and increase levels of knowledge within the industry by giving foodservice professionals a complete understanding of how catering businesses and commercial kitchens work.
The course consists of a comprehensive study guide that students are expected to read and absorb in advance of two half-day seminars, which are followed by an exam.
CFSP is internationally recognised and promoted in many countries around the globe. The UK programme is run by FEA and is accredited by Highfield Qualifications and the University of West London and certified by the CPD Certification Service.
Simon Frost, chair of the FEA’s Education Advisory Group, comments: “We wanted to reach out to people across the hospitality industry who are unemployed and looking for work.
“The ‘CFSP: Open for Work’ course is a chance for them to increase their knowledge of the foodservice industry as a whole and, hopefully, help them secure a new job.”
The seminars take place on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th March and will be held via Zoom. The exam will be held on Wednesday 17th March with the venue to be confirmed in the New Year.
