Dawn

Ethelbert Children's Services , Kent

“We chose Axtell Food Safety to provide training to our client’s staff members – 20 staff on-board their yacht in the Middle East.  The training was very successful, and we were very pleased with the level of training provided.  We chose Axtell Food Safety for their expertise, and will definitely be using them again in the future.

Clare

Exclusive Butler School Ltd, Dubai

“From our initial conversation Dave knew exactly what we were looking for as a new restaurant business. Dave carried out a food hygiene audit, wrote a report with recommendations and priorities and re-visited our premises to discuss his report. We were inspected the following week and were awarded 5 stars for our hygiene rating.”

I highly recommend Axtell Food Safety, particularly to any working professionals with schedule constraints and those in... the maritime industry in need of an MCA-approved Food Safety course. The course content and format was very clear, thorough, and organized. The instructor was friendly, informative, and easy to understand. The flexibility of course times was so helpful. The content and discussions all flowed very well. I am a Chief Stewardess aboard a very busy motor yacht, currently based in New Zealand; I scoured the internet trying to find MCA-approved online Food Safety courses, suitable to individuals who work full-time in time zones outside of the EU. Axtell Food Safety was the only provider I found that offered multiple courses suitable to my time zone and busy work schedule. Regardless of the matter, I was very pleased with my experience overall. Thank you!read more

It is very clear that Dave knows what he's talking about and has a great passion for the food safety industry. He knows a worryingly large amount about food bacteria. He talks about his experience as an active EHO which only helps to reinforce the knowledge with horror stories of what he's seen.He offers pragmatic advice throughout the course aimed at the needs of the learner, he goes further by answering all your burning questions.If there was a level 5 qualification (there isn't) I'd go back to Dave in a heartbeat.

I took Axtell Food Safety's Level 2 courses just the other day. Dave, the instructor, was incredibly personable and attentive. I could tell he really cared about the success of his students. Even though the class was conducted on Zoom, Dave was able to create a fun and comfortable environment where all his students felt seen and understood. I walked away from the course with a ton of knowledge and feeling so much more confident in the galley and even in my own kitchen! Even though I'm based in the U.S and Dave in the U.K, I would definitely recommend a friend to override any other food safety course and go with Axtell Food Safety instead. 100/10, you wont regret it at all.
