The Game Meat Hygiene Course is a well established National Gamekeepers Organisation course. This is a one day course that covers small and large game meat hygiene from field to larder.
Successful candidates will be issued with a unique hunters ID number which authorises them to sell game meat to game handling establishments. This is a legal requirement for all hunters wishing to sell game to game dealers.
The National Gamekeepers' Organisations game meat hygiene course is now regarded as the industry standard in game meat handling.
This course not only covers large game like wild deer and wild boar but also looks at small game such as pheasants, partridge, duck, rabbit and hare.
The course has a short multiple choice test at the end of the day to ensure competency and is certified and certificated by the NGO and the Food Standards Agency (FSA). Successful candidates will get a certificate and a credit card type proof of completion.
Tea and coffee will usually be provided but lunch will not so candidates will need to bring thier own.
