Currently we deliver LCQ classroom courses in: Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Queenstown and Tauranga.

We also deliver the LCQ by Correspondence anywhere in the country for those who are unable to make it to a classroom course due to location, time, or other commitments.

Private LCQ training or Host Responsibility training is available by appointment (minimum numbers apply).

Food Safety Training classroom courses are available in Hamilton and by appointment (minimum numbers apply).

We are also training content providers and currently our LCQ courses are delivered in over 10 other regions around the country through our subscription based training providers who are all registered Tertiary Education Organisations (polytechnics etc).
