array of skills and knowledge units that allow an employer
to mix and match a qualification to suit almost every level
2 employee. See box to left for example units. Click

These qualifications can only be achieved 'on-the-job'. s
courses that will be of interest to people working in the sector
include seafood identification, quality assessment, preparation
and filleting, customer service, product knowledge as well as those
everyday staples food hygiene and health & safety.
Safety and Health & Safety training can be undertaken
as taught courses or through open learning at level 2. A multilingual
course (Level 1 only) is available as a taught programme and we
have a Level 3 eLearning programme for managers. Seafish Hygiene
Open Learning is ideal for many fishmongers as it can be studied
at home and the examination leads to a REHIS or CIEH nationally
recognised qualification. Seafish have an equivalent pack covering
H&S. Level 2 also available here as
an eLearning programme.
Service training isn't something we have available for
fishmongers, although something may be gleaned from looking at our
fish frier customer service skills programme. This pack is available
fare from this site.

Food and Eat It training pack from Seafish. This 6
DVD training pack covers identification, advanced filleting and
preparation skills (4 discs) and also has a seafood quality assessment
