AllerTrain U

allertrianlogo-U-01AllerTrain U is a food allergy and gluten-free training course designed for people who serve food in a college or university setting. Students who suffer from food allergies or celiac disease can have a hard time eating on campus, but if the university staff has taken an AllerTrain U course, they’ll be better prepared to cater to these students’ needs. This will help colleges and universities understand, not only know how to recognize allergic reactions, but also how to have a dining set-up that will help prevent these reactions from occurring. As with our other courses, upon completion, each participant will be issued an AllerTrain U Certificate of Award valid for five (5) years.College campus
