Large Game Meat Hygiene Course
Game Meat Hygiene Course for deer stalkers who require 'Trained Hunter Status'. UK Legislation requires that; ‘Persons who hunt wild game with a view to placing it on the market for human consumption, must have sufficient knowledge of the pathology of wild game, and of the production and handling of wild game and wild game meat after hunting, to undertake an initial examination of wild game on the spot’.
This expertly delivered, certificated, Large Game Meat Hygiene Course is designed to do just that and complies with FSA guidelines that enable candidates that have also completed the PDS1 Course, to become trained hunters and place large game meat on the market for human consumption.
Compiled to the satisfaction of current FSA requirements, this online, e-learning course in Large Game Meat Hygiene enables PDS1 candidates to complete an invaluable and detailed course at a time and place that suits them.
The syllabus is delivered through a series of modules and classes and is assessed through a multiple-choice examination. The course content includes.
(a) The normal anatomy, physiology, and behaviour of wild game.
(b) abnormal behaviour and pathological changes in wild game due to diseases, environmental contamination or other factors which may affect human health after consumption.
(c) the hygiene rules and proper techniques for the handling, transportation, evisceration, etc. of wild game animals after killing.
(d) legislation and administrative provisions on the animal and public health and hygiene conditions governing the placing on the market of wild game.
To comply with legislative guidance that trained persons placing venison and wild game meat on the market for human consumption should be able to identify abnormal behaviour in deer, it is a requirement that persons undertaking this course should have completed the PDS1 qualification.
