Book in for the Light Equipment and Tableware Professional
This new training initiative is designed to give a comprehensive understanding of light equipment and tableware. The Light Equipment and Tableware Professional (LETP) programme is aimed at LET suppliers and manufacturers as well as foodservice operators - the people who manufacture, import, distribute, sell, market or use light equipment and tableware. It was put together with the guidance and endorsement of FEA, Westminster Kingsway College and the Craft Guild of Chefs.
LETP builds on FEA’s established CFSP programme, and looks specifically at the history, the creation, development and future of LET products used throughout the hospitality industry. “It’s designed to enhance, expand and validate the professionalism of those taking the course,” says Steve Hobbs, chair of FEA. “Candidates taking the programme may already be working in LET, and will use it to demonstrate their expertise, or they will be looking to become more involved in this part of the industry.”
LETP candidates learn through 14 modules that cover areas such as ‘materials, shapes and colours’, ‘glassware’, ‘patisserie and bakery’ and ‘what the future looks like’. There’s a full day seminar, including interactive group sessions, followed by an examination.
The Light Equipment and Tableware Professional course costs £600+VAT for members of FEA, FCSI, and for the Craft Guild of Chefs and Westminster Kingsway College, who support the programme. For others the cost is £950+VAT. Courses will run at regular intervals during the year, at venues around the UK.
The first LETP course will be held on the 27th and 28th of January 2022 at First Choice Group in Cannock.
