Ashley is very friendly and clear in her teachings. She gives a lot of real life situations to emphasize the importance of food hygiene and safety.However, Peter who tested the practical part was unreasonable and scolded me when I tried to explain myself for not taking back the plate of cucumbers that I sold to the customer.

Attended the Food Safety & Hygiene Level 1 course at Toa Payoh on 19 Jan 2024. The class was handled by SHIRLEY WONG (ASHLEY). Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Shirley was not only very clear in her delivery of the course material, but she was a very engaging instructor. Whilst communicating the seriousness of food safety and hygiene, she managed to bring humour and lightness to the class which could otherwise have been boring.Thank you Shirley !!
