The SPA Food and Drink Passport renewal course is covered in one full day and will allow delegates to renew their Safety Passport validating it for another 3 years. It provides the same benefits as the 2-day course:
  • The course meets the statutory requirements of the HSE. 
  • The qualification will improve your chances of gaining employment in the food and drink industry. 
  • Provides your employer with the assurance that you are competent and understand the standards required to work within the sector. 
  • It will enable you to understand how you as an individual can help to maintain safety standards and reduce accidents on site.


The course consists of one full day, split into two parts:  Part 1 – Core training refresher: The first part of the day will go over the basic general principles surrounding health and safety and the best practices.  

Part 2 – Food sector-specific refresher 

The second part of the day will refresh delegates' knowledge of the following modules: 

1. Food Protection 

2. Environmental Protection 

3. Health & Safety 


The SPA Food and Drink Passport renewal course is aimed at those who have previously completed the 2-day Food and Drink Safety Passport course. The 9-month window in which the course can be taken is illustrated in the example below: 

Delegate 2-day course completion date: 1st September 2018 

Delegate’s passport expiry: 1st September 2021 

The delegate will need to complete the refresher course between: 

1st March 2021 (6 months prior to expiry) 

1st December 2021 (3 months after expiry) 

Delegate renewed passport expiry date: 1st September 2024 

Please note: there will be no gain/loss of time on the passport as only the year of expiry will change upon renewal of the card - the initial date will stay the same. 


A variety of assessments are undertaken throughout the day to ensure delegates are keeping up with the training. This is because here at Simpleducks, we feel strongly about ensuring candidates are not left behind for any reason. We also reinforce learning with relevant practical exercises where possible.  

Passport cards take 10 working days following the completion of the refresher course and are valid for 3 years (the date will remain the same on your Passport and only the year of expiry will change – please see example above).
