The first step in achieving SQF certification is to clearly understand the SQF Food Safety Code. The Implementing SQF System course is designed for individuals, such as the SQF practitioner, responsible for developing, aligning, verifying, maintaining, and otherwise supporting the site’s SQF food safety System and its culture of food safety. A primary and substitute SQF Practitioner needs to be designated for each site.
The SQF practitioner must have completed HACCP training and be competent to implement and maintain HACCP-based food safety plans and have a clear understanding of the SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing and its requirements.
This week-long SQF Practitioner’s Bundle course includes:
- Two days of HACCP training for food manufacturers, HACCP II: HACCP Plan Development
- The official two-day Implementing SQF Systems Course
- One day of internal auditing principles related to the SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing system requirements, Internal Auditor: SQF
This intensive program provides you with the essential training, knowledge, skills and tools needed to establish and maintain the SQF system certification for your organization.
This course concludes with an online examination. The link to access the exam will be emailed to the email address used for course registration. The online exam must be completed within ten business days of having completed the training course, following which, the exam access will expire.
