The Scottish Shellfish Training Centre is able to address Bivalve Purification training needs across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Southern Shellfish Training Centre is able to address Bivalve Purification training needs in England and Wales.

Both Centres work together with Seafish to provide a UK wide service. The training of Environmental Health Officers for the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Food Standards Scotland (FSS) is delivered by either of the Training Centres, supported by Andy MacLeod who delivers the Bivalve Purification Inspections part of the two-day shellfish hygiene programme.

The purpose of the two-day programme is to equip EHOs with the knowledge required to undertake balanced and proportionate inspections of depuration and despatch centres.
