This virtual instructor-led training course is delivered in four 4-hour sessions on consecutive training days.

This newly refreshed and completely updated Implementing SQF System course is designed for those 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.

With a focus on continuous improvement, practical activities provide attendees the opportunity to align their existing programs with the SQF Code and build skills that will enable an environment where food safety is a top priority.

It is recommended that participants have successfully completed a HACCP training course meeting the definition found in the Glossary of the SQF Code, Edition 9 before attending this course.

NOTE: Attendees will be referring to Edition 9 of the SQF Code frequently during the training course. Attendees should have their copy of the applicable SQF Code printed or readily available electronically.

This course covers food safety requirements only. For information on building your quality management system and related training, please see the SQF Quality Systems for Manufacturing training course.
