BRC HARPC Training

This two-day course will cover the similarities and differences between requirements of the BRC Food Standard and FSMA’s Preventive Controls rule.

SQF (Safe Quality Food)

This two-day SQF Advanced Practitioner Course is designed for the current SQF practitioner seeking further information on how to improve and maintain the supplier’s SQF System. Through activity-based instruction, the course provides the tools practitioners need to use the internal audit program to manage, maintain and enhance the site’s SQF System; harness the corrective action/preventive action process to identify trends and build continuous improvement; communicate with senior management to more fully define the site’s commitment to food safety; and develop and prioritize key performance indicators to assure continuous improvement of the SQF System.

Implementing SQF Food Safety Management System version 7.2

This course is offered as a 1-day or 2-day training and is designed to provide food safety professionals with detailed knowledge and understanding of the SQF Code. It enables authorized personnel to be fully trained in how HACCP quality management systems are implemented, in addition to thoroughly understanding how to perform effective internal audits of the SQF management system. The SQF system provides assurance to the end customer that food produced, prepared and handled by the food supplier is of the highest possible standards.
