He will require a food handling medical before he attend if he hasn't already had one. If he has any civi catering quals he may be exempt class 3 and can just attend a field catering course to bring him up to class 3 standard.
JD thanks and I knew that one was coming!
He will be( if he comes across) another RNR transferee.
Does the class III also cover the field catering during the two weeks? He doesn't have any civi quals.
It is a good course, the first week being kitchen basics, the second week being the field phase. The blokes who came for the second phase on my course were mostly professionals, one was catering for the work force at the Millenium Dome project, and knew one of the instructors via various cooking competitions.
Grantham is a bit of a dive, but its no worse than Aldershot.
