Highly recommend these guys. Over the last 3 years, I have done two of their one day courses - one in the classroom and one online. Each one has been very informative, interactive and personalized to each person in the room. Examples given by the tutor are related to the individual situations each person in the class, is, or will experience. My auditor was extremely impressed with my paperwork and presentation of our Food Caravan. Thank you, Food Safe, for setting me up to succeed in hospitality.

I recently did the food safe course with Keith and learned a lot! He manages to keep you interested throughout the course with a variety of stories and examples, as well as many jokes! Keith has an incredible ability to make sure that everyone attending the course is given enough individual attention to help them with the personal reasons that they decided to do the course. I would highly recommend this course for anyone planning to work around food.

Keith was such an informative yet fun trainer for the course I did and I felt like I learnt so much within the time. He possesses knowledge that helps one feel that they've gained something valuable before heading into or integrating themselves into the food industry. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to gain some knowledge and further education on food heath and safety!!!

This course was absolutely amazing and educational! I wish I had learnt these things sooner but I’m glad to have had this chance to study with Keith! An absolute pleasure learning with you today and such a funny positive guy! Highly appreciate all the tips and your efforts into making this course a fun and rewarding experience. Would definitely do this again 😊
01:22 03 Oct 22
Excellent course. Very well delivered. The instructor is very knowledgeable, interesting, clear and covers a lot very efficiently. He also tailored the course to our individual situations and needs making it even more helpful and worthwhile. He made sure I achieved my goals in booking the course, and I appreciated the helpful way he answered all my questions. I highly recommend this course and the Introduction to HACCP which I also did with him.

I enjoyed this training day. Keith was well informed on Food safety requirements. He also had a good understanding of what different industries were involved as students so tailored the training to suit.
02:27 19 Aug 22
Online training with Keith was excellent. I enjoyed the personal coaching that he managed to fit in alongside the stuff we needed to know. Highly recommend for anyone working in or thinking about working in hospitality 🙂
02:23 13 Aug 22
Thank you for a fantastic course today Keith! Keith's course is the best I have done during my career - he met every participant and took the time to learn about every participant's goal for joining the course today. Then he referenced the material with the individual participants in mind which was beneficial to them, but to the group as a whole. The material was exciting to learn about and Keith's presentation style was welcoming, engaging, humorous and very informative. I highly recommend Keith's course for all levels of learners, and for all industry sectors who are involved in the food industry. Thank you again.

02:41 25 Jul 22
My first time participating in an online course. Keith is an excellent instructor, he made everyone welcome and gave specific advice for each person's business. Very interactive, informative and relaxed. I would highly recommend Food Safe Ltd
02:45 22 Jul 22
I had my online training course with Keith today and wow. I have never been taught (including all my years at University) by someone not only passionate and genuine towards the course but articulates it so well in an interactive and humorous learning session. The content was super helpful for someone working in the frontline of serving customers there ready to eat food but also understanding legislations for future as I am too, a business owner. So I managed to gain so much knowledge and perspective from Keith not only because of the content but because I was thoroughly engaged throughout. Thank you for making learning enjoyable this session Keith! 🙂

Although I expected my Basic Food Safety and Hygiene course to be a not-so-interesting experience, Keith kept it engaging, quick and informative. I appreciate his time, stories and the magic tricks that he shared!
02:20 08 Jul 22
I had an amazing experience with Keith. Everything was communicated so clear. Keith is very friendly and always mentioned the participants by our name. He remembered where we come from. It's so personal. Thank you Food Safe. From: IGNATIUS

I trained with Keith online and highly recommend this training.It was clear, concise and very relaxed. All we need to know was covered efficiently with lots to take away.
02:21 27 May 22
This is the second time I have personally used Keith and his team from Food Safe. He continues to stay abreast of all things food safe within the industry. I found the online course to be informative, engaging and at times, entertaining. Thanks again Keith for your expertise. We will continue to be a customer of yours going forward.
02:18 27 May 22
I did the online training course with Keith. Hard to believe, but he made the course fun and entertaining. Keith has a wealth of information and advice for the students (especially me as a new business owner). I appreciated his historical knowledge and his ability to make the information relevant to my business needs. This is my first online course in years, and appreciate having a great instructor that provided a great amount of knowledge. Thank you so much Keith!
02:31 06 May 22
I completed a food safety course today and found it very informative and interactive. Keith is a fantastic facilitator, he is very knowledgeable and provided accurate information and examples. I particularly enjoyed his recap magic tricks!
02:33 22 Apr 22
I enjoyed todays course. Keith was great. He gave us a lot of information while maintaining a positive and bubbly attitude. He made sure to include all of us in all conversations and made sure we went at a good pace so we can understand. thank you very much 🙂
02:34 08 Apr 22
I was nervous prior to doing the course mainly because it has been a long time since I’ve done any courses/study. However Keith was very easy going, funny and made everyone at ease. The course itself is very detailed and he made sure individual students were looked after in terms of what they actually needed from the course. I have learned a lot and now have more confidence in my future project 🙂 thank you!
03:36 01 Apr 22
Enjoyable training, clear, easy to follow , relevant programme. Knowledgeable presenter who had examples that linked to all participants. Delivered with humour and with ease. Thank you Keith. It was a worthwhile day.
06:11 25 Mar 22
Keith was such a hive of information! He spoke clearly, in an engaging style that was easy to listen to for a day-long training session, and he remained focused and on-point right throughout the day.He was careful to include (and individually addressed) all zoom group members, and encouraged interaction (questions) using the group chat function (to allow the training to flow without constant verbal interruptions). He would systematically respond to these group chat questions at appropriate times, ensuring the training remained fluid. I thought this system was a clever use of our training time (which was limited to a time schedule).Keith ascertained, right from the beginning, our specific vocations and tried to tailor the training with additional information where he knew it would benefit individuals.I am a strong visual learner, so really appreciated the photos, images and videos displayed throughout the training (if the training was solely audio/talking I would have struggled to retain as much as I did).I had heard that Keith was a fabulous trainer (knowledgeable, warm, funny), now I can vouch from personal experience that the rumours are true! Thanks heaps, Laura Donovan.

Fabulous online class, easy to understand. Explained everything so wellWill certainly recommend your services, looking forward to my refresher class when I am due.Thank you so much Keith

Overall very good. Full of information, Keith is very knowledgeable. A few technically issues which could have been addressed better. As I have excellent wifi connection and know it wasn't my connection. I couldn't see the screen for almost half of the session and found it a lot harder to follow along.
01:38 03 Dec 21

This was my second time taking the certification on food safety (the first was several years ago) and still appreciate the way the topics were delivered. Keith has a great depth of knowledge and experience on the subject which makes it all come out naturally. He is also open to questions and freely gives great tips on the processes. Thank you.
