Our E-Learning Courses

WHY WE'VE CREATED E-LEARNING COURSES

The Oxford College of First Aid has been successfully running Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) accredited training courses for over 10 years. To pick just one example, during our ongoing ten year partnership with Hampshire County Council, we have trained over 5,000 of their delegates since April 2005.

Our traditional "face to face" approach to training brings many advantages to the learner and the number of different courses that we provide has been steadily growing throughout the years.

However, for certain subject areas and particular qualifications, delegates can benefit from an e-learning approach that enables them to learn in their own time and in the convenience of their own workplace or home.


THE BENEFITS OF OUR E-LEARNING COURSES

Some of the benefits of our e-learning courses include:

  • Delegates study at their own pace, not at the pace of the slowest member of a group
  • Delegates can study what they need and can skip parts of a program they already know
  • No time is lost travelling to and from a formal training venue
  • No time is lost on polite social interaction with trainers and other delegates
  • No time is lost on questions raised by others that may not always be relevant
  • The interactive nature of the course improves learning and knowledge retention
  • Learning is ensured as delegates must reach the CIEH approved score to pass

WHY YOU SHOULD USE OCFA FOR E-LEARNING

At OCFA, we are a training company first and foremost. Each e-learning course is first designed and developed on paper by our own highly qualified and experienced trainers. Only after this process has been completed and fully tested, do we then bring in our technical team to translate the learning into an online experience.

Our trainers then thoroughly road test the e-learning course themselves to ensure that all of the subject knowledge is being properly communicated to the delegate. We also have a team of trusted clients, who then beta test the e-learning courses and feedback helpful advice, enabling us to improve on areas such as the ease of use and user friendliness of the course before launching to the general public.

By going through this rigorous process, we are proud to be creating e-learning courses that sit at the forefront of this growing market.


LEVEL 2 AWARD IN FOOD SAFETY IN CATERING E-LEARNING COURSE

We are delighted to announce the launch of the first of our E-Learning Courses.

The EU Regulation (852/2004 Hygiene for Foodstuffs) requires all businesses, where food is prepared, cooked and handled, to ensure that all members of staff have been adequately trained in food hygiene, according to their role.

This course is designed for any employed or self-employed individual, who is involved in the preparation of food that will be consumed by the general public. This course is ideal for nursery staff, schools, colleges and catering departments of hospitals and care homes. It is also perfect for those working in restaurants, hotels, fast food outlets, takeaways, cafés and bars etc.

This course has been designed and developed by our own highly qualified food hygiene trainers and the syllabus includes the following ten modules:

  • Introduction To Food Safety
  • Food Poisoning
  • Microbiology
  • Contamination
  • Temperature Control
  • Cleaning
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Kitchen Layout and Design
  • Pest Control
  • The Law

Delegates should allow 2 hours to study and complete the course - each module contains multiple choice questions to confirm that the information is being understood and culminates in a final online exam.

On completion of this course, delegates will have a full understanding about:

  • Exactly why food hygiene is so important
  • The various circumstances where food can become contaminated
  • The prevention of contamination through cleanliness and other best practices
  • The prevention of contamination using correct temperature and storage processes
  • Their own personal and legal responsibilities to their customers
  • The serious impact to the business of a failure in food safety standards

There is also a Fast Track option available. This is ideal for those renewing their existing qualifications and for those already experienced in Food Safety.

Passing the final exam entitles the delegate to a certificate confirming that they have reached Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering.
