Verner Wheelock students get top marks from RSPH

Verner Wheelock students get top marks from RSPH

Not one, not two, but three students trained by leading food industry training company, Verner Wheelock Associates, have achieved the highest marks in the country in their RSPH examinations.

Helen Kearney, Operations Manager at Nature’s Best, based in Drogheda, Ireland, came top of the class in the Level 4 Award in HACCP Management for Food Manufacturing. Meanwhile fellow delegates Lianne Davis, a Quality and Specifications Technologist for Bradford-based dried convenience foods manufacturer, Symington’s, and consultant Peter Smith of QSDA, Fife, were joint winners of the RSPH Level 4 Award in Food Safety in Manufacturing title.

The winners will be honoured at the RSPH’s annual award ceremony in October.

Verner Wheelock’s Managing Director, Alison Wheelock said “Huge congratulations go out to Helen, Peter and Lianne. It’s fantastic that three Verner Wheelock students have achieved top marks at such an advanced level.

We always strive to provide the most engaging and relevant courses for our delegates, using real-life examples to illustrate key points wherever possible.  The awards are testimony to the hard work put in by both the students themselves and our trainers, who are amongst the best in the country.”

To achieve RSPH Level 4, trainees must be able to demonstrate a high level of understanding of the principles and concepts used in food safety management. In order to ensure that all aspects are covered and the most up-to-date information is imparted, students are tutored by more than one trainer, each with their own particular specialism.

Lianne Davis was thrilled to hear the news of her award, saying: “I was really shocked when the RSPH got in touch to tell me, but I’m really pleased and proud to have won the award and I’m looking forward to the ceremony in October. All credit to Verner Wheelock though – all the training courses I’ve been on, including the Level 4 Food Safety, have been well planned,

Contd…

 

well thought out and have been delivered by fantastic trainers who are really enthusiastic about their subject and obviously enjoy imparting their knowledge to their students. I couldn’t have done it without them!”

This is not the first time that a Verner Wheelock student has received an award for outstanding results in recent years. Quality Assurance Manager, Wayne Bonadie, scored top marks in the RSPH Level 4 Food Safety for Manufacturing examination in 2011. In fact VWA trainees have regularly won awards in HACCP, Food Safety and Nutrition since the 1990s when the company was formed.
