Why is this such great news? Because 6 of our 9 learners did not have English as their first language, but they worked so hard to learn all the English words necessary just to be able to take the exam. Trainers need to understand just how stressful it is to do this with an unfamiliar language. We came up with some smart techniques to be able to handle the exam, while staying completely ethical and professional. So, to our learners I will say… a very big congratulations, you passed on your own merit and the ability to understand food safety, and I am very proud to have been one of your trainers. It was just as exciting to me as winning a penalty shoot out at the World Cup, but way more important!
