SQF Certification Training
The first step in achieving and maintaining SQF Certification is to understand the SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing. This class is designed to fulfill the training requirements to prepare individuals to take the SQF Practitioner test. All SQF certified sites must have at least one SQF Practitioner overseeing the SQF Food Safety System. However, industry best practice is to have several Practitioners to ensure management commitment and coverage of the entire SQF System. As a licensed SQF Training Center, this hands-on workshop uses the official SQF training material but adds real-life practical advice to fulfill requirements of the code. Students will get a manual with the slides, a practice test, and an attendance certificate with the SQF Institute logo, our logo, and license number. This course is recommended for sites seeking certification, maintaining certification or anyone interested in learning more about the SQF program and certification. We will focus on SQF system elements and module 11 (Good Manufacturing Practices for Processing of Food Products).
