With five AFOS smoking kilns at our disposal, the Seafood Training Academy is able to offer smoking training courses at our main centre (Grimsby Seafood Village) and a variety of other venues across the UK. Courses will range from 1 day introductory to 5 day advanced practical courses.

Attendees on the 2 and 5 day training courses will be expected to have studied either the full eLearning programme in seafood smoking (for 5 day courses) or the open leaning module on fish smoking (for 2 day courses) BEFORE they attend the practical courses. S
