This course covers general allergies, food allergies and food intolerances and explains the differences between them.

Recently took the NVQ Level 2 in Construction Operations and Civil Engineering. Perfectly mentored by my tutor and was in good communication with Cohen and Nigel throughout the course. Highly recommend 👍🏼

Top training provider. Couldn’t recommend a better company to be honest if your looking to further your qualifications or stepping into a new trade. Not only that but by far one of the cheaper ones after comparing to other training providers. I completed my NVQ2 in joinery/carpentry in a matter of short months, had non stop support from my assessor Steve and others in their office. Overall 10/10. (Ps. I never leave reviews but credit where credits due) thank you 👍🏻

Course Info

Allergies occur when the body’s immune system reacts to a usually harmless substance as though it is harmful. Why this happens, isn’t clear. However, most sufferers come from families that have a history of allergies, or related problems. Every year, the number of people with allergies is increasing so having an awareness of potential allergens and why they can be harmful is becoming more important, particularly if you work in the service industry.

This course covers general allergies, food allergies and food intolerances and explains the differences between them. It covers the 14 allergens controlled by legislation along with food additives and how they can trigger allergic reactions. It takes a detailed look at the symptoms of food allergies and takes in the wider picture discussing the current theories of why rates are increasing. It then finishes off by covering practical steps that can be taken to reduce the risk from allergens and also what steps can be taken both internally and externally to monitor the control measures.
