The course training was very successful, and we were very pleased with the level of training provided. The trainer, Keith, had excellent communication skills and catered to all our individual needs in respect of training levels. Will most definitely use their service again. Thank you!

Being a newbie in the F&B industry, I don’t have any experience in the kitchen environment. After attending the Food & Safety course instructed by Keith, I am more aware of the dos and don’ts, and I have more confidence in handling tasks in the kitchen. Keith made the lesson so much easier to understand and I 100% recommend 💯friends and family that needed this course to attend as well!☺

Just attended a Basic Food Hygiene course at Adept Academy recently. The course was easy to follow under their professional guidance and welcoming team. Great work, thanks!
