  • VCE VET Elective | review from Susan Morwood

    03 October 2023

      "I completed 'Use hygienic practices for food safety' a few weeks ago. The instructor was personable, experienced and able to bring these qualities to her teaching of this subject. I particularly appreciated her ability to apply the material to the individual circumstances of each participant, highlighting aspects of food handling that was important for each of our situations. Thanks, Susan"
