The CCFS study course provides a strong core knowledge base for food safety professionals with a primary responsibility of overseeing the processing, manufacturing, and supply-chain environments of the U.S. and imported food supply. It has been designed to meet the increasing need for highly qualified food safety professionals from both industry and the regulatory community that provide oversight in preventing food safety breaches at U.S. production and manufacturing facilities and abroad. The participant learns not only the Preventive Controls and Foreign Supplier Verification programs, but how to create plans that meet the requirements.
The course will give the participant in-depth knowledge as a qualified individual (QI) in developing, deploying, managing, and inspecting food safety plans for food products and facilities in the U.S. and abroad. The CCFS credential, for those who apply for and pass the examination, demonstrates to all that the holder has mastered the knowledge needed to create, manage, or audit a facility’s food safety system.
Course fees include the CCFS Study Manual, a $209.00 value. The CCFS Study Manual will be shipped prior to the class. Students should review the book and be familiar with the materials before the course.
NEHA will also be offering the CCFS exam at the Summit. Prior approval is required to sit for the exam. For more information visit www.neha.org/professional-development/credentials, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-756-9090 ext. 339.
