    Traduction en anglais : Are useful the food handling hygiene courses ?

    The aim of this study was to asses if the current courses on food handling hygiene improve the knowledge about this topic ; these courses are compulsory to obtain legal permission for handling food in public facilities.

    Every four years this permission has to be renewed.

    A questionnaire was passed before and after the course. 161 participants were included in the study group.

    Age, sex and if participants had passed a previous course was studied.

    The mean age for the studied group was 33 years ; a higher proportion of women and of people who participated for the first time was observed.

    With respect to the first questionnaire, in the second one an increase of 60% of people who passed the exam was obtained, which was attributable to the course.

    This improvement was similar for new and old participants.

    Conclusions :

    An important increase on food handling hygiene knowledge was observed after the present course, but the similar results for new and old participants suggest a small utility in the long term.
