"We at the National Trust expect high standards from our catering staff and as Hannah, Consultant at Sudni Training & Heritage, has worked for us we knew she understood the level of training we required. We were not disappointed, the staff members that she has trained for us not only enjoyed and learned a lot from the training, they also all achieved a Merit in the final exam. I would not hesitate in recommending Sudni Training & Heritage for their level 3 Food Safety training course."
